Celebrate New Year 2019!
Review 2018, set new goals and make resolutions for 2019 with this fun self portrait art and writing activity.
Engage older kids creatively and spark their humour with this New Years 'Focus on 2019' cool, funny 'Geek Chic Spectacles' themed art, writing and decor resource.
Ideal for use as a first week back activity or as an art specific or self reflection lesson.
Students can choose their favorite spectacles and create a unique self portrait, and then complete the review and resolution activities which combine art and writing.
I will update this activity each year, so you will be able to download free updates if you would like to continue to use the activity beyond 2019.
