Students will explore symbols and metaphors through this Semi-Abstract Surreal Self-Portrait painting and collage class. Students are empowered to share a personal story, incorporating cultural elements and their lived experience of a real or metaphorical journey, big or small, that they have been on. Final products of a painting/collage on paper can be displayed and used as inspiration for inter-disciplinary curriculum exploration through English (poetry, writing exercises, journal work) and social studies (for example).
