My Art, My Life, My Future
In this autobiographical art project, middle school art and design students described through visual imagery and writing what it’s like being a middle school student, their personal interests and passions, and dreams and hopes for their future. Students used a mixed media approach to their work including watercolor painting, collaged found imagery, and autobiographical writing to construct a final piece about themselves. The results revealed meaningful aspects of our students' experiences. Students then shared their artwork and discussed their work as a classroom community.
