All The Colors of the Rainbow - St. Patrick's Day Portrait Mural
Natalie, art teacher and creator of the blog, smART Class, designed this vibrant display for back to school, but with it's rainbow theme we think it would make a gorgeous St. Patrick's Day display as well! Have your kiddos draw simple self-portraits for the display or you might consider...
- Inviting your students draw what they would look like as a leprechaun - pointed ears, hat, beard, costume, etc.
- Having your kiddos think about their future and draw themselves through the lens of what they want to be when they grow up!
- Expounding on the pot of gold rainbow theme, encouraging your kiddos to think about the "treasures" in their lives and draw a picture of their hero.
Rainbow Portrait Mural
Collage your students' portraits on the board - grouping like colors together and creating a rainbow effect. Natalie suggests assigning a different color for each table and allowing students to use a variety of graphic art tools - crayons, markers, colored pencils, etc. Add a homemade rainbow border or store-bought trimmer to the display and you're set! [NOTE: The rainbow also offers a fabulous theme for spring so this bulletin board is sure to get some mileage!]
