5th graders created these AWESOME LEGO self portraits. The inspiration for this lesson came from a fellow art teacher. Students started by drawing the basic lego shape thinking of the head as a rounded square, the body as a trapezoid, the legs as rectangles, and the arms as a pentagon cut in half. After students mastered the lego form they were to go in and make it look like them. We experimented with shade and value to help bring our legos to life.
They ALL turned out so well I'm excited to share them!
