Mask Portraits

Lesson Overview

What We Did:
 
Everyone knows that middle schoolers have lots of emotions—most of which change multiple times within a single class period. During my ten years of teaching middle school, I have made an effort to discuss emotions and art in an open way by encouraging students to recognize emotions, feel emotions, and eventually learn how to express emotions through art.
