Lesson 1: What Makes Me…Me

Lesson 2: Time to Doodle!

Many notable artists have shaped the history of art by expressing their individuality through self-portraits. To celebrate your student’s self-expression, first help them explore how they are unique.

Your students have explored their likes and character traits. Now it’s time for your students to share what makes them unique and turn it into a creative doodle!

Objective: Students will explore selfexpression by comparing artists’ selfportraits to reveal how personality and character traits are expressed through art. Then, they will explore their own special qualities and what makes them unique.

Materials: Completed student reproducibles, pencil, drawing paper, art supplies, page 4 reproducible parent letter (one per student)

Materials: Whiteboard or projector for displaying self-portraits; What Makes Me... Me reproducible (one per student), pencils, drawing paper, art supplies Steps: 1. Go to www.google.com/culturalinstitute/ browse/self-portrait. Display two distinct self-portraits from artists like Vincent Van Gogh, Andy Warhol, Norman Rockwell, and Judith Leyster. 2. Have students compare and contrast the similarities and differences between the two self-portraits. Use a Venn diagram to help students visualize the comparison. 3. Students will most likely compare physical characteristics. Encourage students to expand their comparison further and compare personality traits. 4. Lead students into a discussion about the artists’ personalities or character traits. For example: How do you think this person feels? What might this person be doing? What do you think this person likes to do? Encourage students to be creative with their responses. 5. Explain to students that self-portraits share not only physical characteristics of people but also their likes, dislikes, and personality traits. 6. Distribute the What Make Me...Me reproducible to each student. Define the word “unique” and discuss the characteristics or personality traits that makes them special. 7. Ask students to complete the questions in the indicated spaces on the reproducible. Students may choose to answer the questions through a picture rather than words. Younger students may need to complete the reproducible at home with an adult.

Objective: Students reflect on what characteristics, likes, and dislikes define them and create a self-portrait utilizing various mediums.

Steps: 1. To get the creativity flowing, show students what inspired our team to become Google Doodlers. Use the following: • www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0d0VDOoD7k 2. Have students share their reproducible What Makes Me...Me with the class and discuss their answers/drawings. Discuss what makes a person unique and special. 3. Explain to students they will now complete a doodle using various types of materials. Encourage students to refer to the reproducible to incorporate their characteristics and favorites into the doodle. 4. Give each student a large piece of drawing paper to create their doodle. Encourage students to use mediums like paint, markers, stickers, etc. to create a doodle that best represents who they are inside and out. You can also set aside time for students to collect materials such as items from nature, magazine cut-outs, and other textiles to incorporate. Note - students can use any tangible materials that they feel represent who they are, and 3D doodles such as pottery are also fair game! However, submissions are reviewed in 2D so please send a of the masterpiece. 5. Utilize the Google Doodler video at www.youtube.com/watch?v=AV6xvIYzP-U to encourage students to try various mediums and/or approaches. 6. In small groups, have students share and discuss the completed doodle. For younger students, you may want to conduct a class discussion.
