Faces of Diversity


These are some ways I came up with to try to teach diversity in our school as a wonderful thing.... A celebration!

Mrs. Johnson's 2nd grade class
Mrs. May's 3rd grade
Ashlynn & Abbey

2nd & 3rd grade

I made a handout to help inspire students to use a basic circle to begin an assortment of diverse faces...

Mrs. Zarella's kinder class working...

Alternative: use crazy crayon colors to give a more fun celebratory feeling!
Mrs. Meleski's 3rd grade
Devyn, Arooba & Gregory 
Mrs. Jamison's 2nd grade
----------Caleb, Joey & Michelle

Mrs. Fortner's 2nd grade class
Brianna, Adeline, Maci & Jasmine
Mrs. Craig's 3rd grade class
London, Kelly, Daniel, Whitney & Zamera
Kinder & 1st grade
In art there is so many choices of supplies, colors, shades, tints, designs & lines that could be used to create. It's this diversity that keeps art... 
Or life... fUN!

So, I chose for my little art students to use colored pencils as a subject for displaying diversity of size, colors & lines. 

Cut a rainbow of paper into 1.5 inch strips (including brown)...

Add highlights down the center of each pencil with a white crayon. 

Glue the colored pencils down in rainbow order...

Changing heights and adding faces makes them even more diverse!
