The lesson

Students used
*crayons to *draw a *self-portrait on 8 x 10 1/2 inch sheets of white *paper, cut each *figure out, to glue it onto a similarly sized sheet of *colored construction paper. Then they had many options in making changes to the *background -- including cutting and gluing pieces of colored papers, crayons and *tempera paints.

    Made partly for a fund-raiser

    These pictures were sent to a company which created a photo-reduction of each picture mounted on a magnet. Each student took these things home along with an order form with which families could purchase the magnet if they chose. Whether they did or not, it was a valuable experience for students of art to see their works reproduced. Families could order other products on which the company would print a *reproduction of the child's picture. These products include T-shirts, sweatshirts, caps, mugs, aprons, calendars, greeting cards, and mouse pads! Even with the smallest mark-up, this fund-raiser has been very helpful to our art program, permitting us to *frame some students' work, and to acquire various art supplies, art reproductions, and computer software.
