Have fun celebrating Christmas and the holidays creatively with this modern, 'tech' tablet 'Festive Selfies' art resource pack.
Invite students to choose a character and create an imaginative self portrait using one of the 7 hand drawn outline images provided in the pack:
In this pack, you will find the following templates:
1. 7 tablet character templates: santa, snowman, angel, tree, elf, bauble, reindeer
2. 3 tablet templates for creative writing activities, where students can develop stories around their selfie characters and also answer text style questions about their characters and the activity.
2. all 7 character templates, formatted as foldable greetings cards to make and take home to family and friends.
3. 7 finished examples for inspiration, describing the materials used
4. ‘we love our selfies’ titles for your bulletin board displays
Materials to consider:
Felt tips, pencils, watercolor paints, oli pastels
Felt, sequins, ribbons, old gift wrap, buttons
Washi tape, doilies, coloured paper, tissue paper, cotton wool
Print the required templates onto heavy weight paper - they are formatted to US letter size
Use the examples for inspiration. Invite your students to choose a character that appeals to them
and let them create a selfie. They can then answer the ‘text style’ questions or use the
blank template to write imaginatively about their selfie character.
Cut out and display the finished tablets. You may wish to glue them onto stiff card so they can displayed on a shelf or peg them as a garland.
You can make them 2-sided if you want to by glueing 2 artworks together.
This activity encourages working imaginatively, thinking about portraits in an abstract way, whilst celebrating all the excitement and fun that Christmas brings.
The pack works with a basic set of materials such as felt tips, or if time and resource allows - get the glitter out and have fun collaging with cotton wool, tissue paper, buttons and all manner of materials.
I hope you have fun!
