Howard Finster inspired Self Portraits

Second grade just completed their self portraits inspired by Georgia, folk artist, HOWARD FINSTER! Students wrote personal sentences about themselves that filled their background and their names inside of their shirts! Many students wrote humorous sentences about themselves and some revealed many interesting things! They worked really hard and are very proud of their self portraits! Way to go Second graders!

A big THANK YOU to the second grade team that helped out with the writing process!!!
