My second graders are doing an art criticism activity, in which they compare & contrast their own patterned self-portrait collages with work by artist Miriam Schapiro. Observe:
My Student Teacher: *pins up a kid’s work*
Joshua: “Gah! Upside down!”
MST: “Oh! I’m sorry! That’s better. Okay, so can anyone point out some differences you see between Joshua’s artwork and Miriam Schapiro’s?”
Emiyah: “Um…with Miriam Schapiro’s work, you could tell if it was upside down and with Joshua’s work…you can’t?”
