Body Tracings with Phillip Martin
Lesson Plan

Not only was this a fun activity, it was such a winner for "Back to School Night" with the parents.  Young artists are first loosely traced on bulletin board paper and then they have to draw themselves.  These "likenesses" are taped to the children's chairs before the parents arrive.  Some of the bodies have wonderful patterns and detail.  Other tracings, well . . .  the parents are glad that each child is asked to put a name tag on their shirt.
