Welcome back to Carly Theory!
Have your students learn about Giuseppe Arcimboldo! My students were in love with this project because they HAD to be silly and creative to create their self-portrait collage. I used this for Second Graders.
I also attached a youtube clip resource that was a hit! It is a "Art with Mati and Dada" video about Arcimboldo...if you don't already know what youtube channel that is. They will also learn about collages and how to create them. Also, a requirement is that they will have to OVERLAP images to create the illusion of depth (or real life) in their portrait.
-Presentation (8 slides) about artist with GREAT youtube clip resource, overlapping-6 illusions of space slide, collage slide
