Outrageous Hair - 5th grade

The kids in 5th grade love starting the year with this outrageous project. We have been talking about lines for may years by now and the kids take the opportunity to show what they know about this important art element. We review line types, the use of repetition to create pattern, the use of variety to create interest and use portrature to tie it all together. Students begin with a U or upside down U to start their face. They then may choose to place hair either on the top of the head or on the face as long as the paper is filled with outrageous hair.
