If the mustache fits! Salvador Dali self-portraits

This was one of my favorite projects from my summer art camp! The students were introduced to Salvador Dali, surrealism and especially his outrageous mustache. I snapped their pictures, each student created their own mustache and added a surreal world behind their photos with crayons. I love the flying pig, surreal elephant and twisty giraffe in this unique world from one of my talented summer artists!

Romero Britto inspired jumbo snowmen

 I came across this Romero Britto snowman ornament which provided the inspirations for my fifth graders' cooperative jumbo snowmen.  Each table of three students worked on giant snowballs, boots, hats, scarfs, etc. adding bright bold patterns with black accents and assembled the pieces with glue when finished.
