Autobiography Art

Our genre focus in February was biographies.  In addition to writing their autobiographies, the kids made these self potraits.   I had a parent trace their sillouettes and then the kids used magazines to cut out pictures and words representative of their lives.  Check out a few other examples under the Art Gallery tab.


  1. Hey Stephanie!

    I just found your blog. What great ideas! I just posted a link to this post because I think it would make a great end of the project as well. Check out the post here if you'd like:

    Thanks for your idea about the address labels on my post by the way. So simple... love it!
