SELF-PORTRAIT!  After watching a movie and learning about the painting entitled American Gothic by Grant Wood, students created a parody of it.  We reviewed the proportions of the face and how everything is symmetrical and divided mathematically.  Then they drew themselves and another person or character of their choice.  Students came up with wonderful ideas and included some type of background that resembled the building or the shape of the building from American Gothic.  When finished, each student wrote at least five sentences about their artwork explaining it.
