2nd Grade: Self Portrait Collages

  • Students in 2nd grade created self portrait collages inspired by the work of our ICCSD Visiting Illustrator, Bryan Collier.  Students read the book, Hey Black Child by Useni Eugene Perkins and illustrated by Bryan Collier.  Students discussed the meaning of the book and talked about current issues in Civil Rights.  We studied Mr. Collier's collage style and use of symbols to create portraits of our own using a mirror.
