Second Grade Salvador Dali Self Portraits

Second Grade has learned about the famous Surealist artist, Salvador Dali. He lived a strange life, made strange artworks from ideas that came from his dreams, and had a strange appearance. I printed out photos of his unique mustache as it evolved over the years. We read a biography of Dali. We then learned about placement of facial features to make a self portrait. Watercolors were painted on, blending yellow, orange and brown to create a personal skin tone. Then the children got to pick a chenille stem and form a unique mustache which I hot glued on for them. Thanks to the inspiration I found on line for this fun project. It has given us many chuckles!
