Saints Self-Portraits Levels 6 - 9

This is the description from the wall label:

Our oldest students took the idea of saints’ portraits to an entirely personal level by recreating their own photographs into portraits of the saints they were representing. They did this by using a variety of materials beginning with collage for their images and adding details with paints, oil pastels, and other materials. Their portraits also included symbolic imagery related to their chosen saints. The frames were constructed from recycled paper towel rolls spray painted gold inspired by the many Byzantine paintings of saints.

Materials used:
  • Oak tag paper
  • Acrylic paints
  • Brushes
  • Sand
  • Glue
  • Glitter
  • Oil pastels
  • Pencils
  • Photographs printed on computer paper
  • Sharpies
  • Misc. materials
  • Gold painted paper towel rolls, cut in pieces
