The self-portraits are of the students “Reading Life” and displays what makes each student unique and shows off the places in which each student is a strong reader.
“This project began as a way for students to look critically at their lives as readers and to begin to experiment with artistic techniques that would represent themselves. By looking at the work of Frida Kahlo, we sought out a way to show our reading lives through our art in the same way that Frida Kahlo used her self-portraits as a way to introduce herself to her viewer,” said Seven Hills in their press release.
Three Parts to the Self Portraits
Third graders looked at the self portraits and completed them in three parts.
“Artists created self-portraits first focusing on what made them unique. Next, artists thought about places where they were a strong reader. The setting of the Reading Life Self- Portrait should convey a place in which they feel comfortable as a reader to take risks and are able to focus. After the artists found their setting, each artist was asked to think of the things they surrounded themselves with when reading,” said Seven Hills.
The grand opening for the exhibit was held on Tuesday, December 13.
