This project was influenced by the artist Chagall. After talking about surrealism, symbolism, and dreams, students constructed a dreamlike composition. Elements included were: a head to toe self portrait along with something they love pictured in their hand or on their shoulder; students home in the background; some sort of plant life; and the sun or moon, with a face. They then used oil pastels to color in their composition.
