At the start of the year you’ll recall we completed this geometric personal survey, tossing likes and dislikes into trapezoids, circle sectors, etc, and drawing self-portraits. At the start of the year I turned ’em all into PDFs. ‘Cause you never know.
Today, eight months later, I tossed their self-portraits back at them and asked them to guess student from caricature.
Some of them, we decided, were fantastic facsimiles of the real deal. Some of them reflected a student’s character better than her appearance. And others not even the original artist recognized.
Really fun, actually, though a really great teacher probably woulda had his students write some new-school-year resolutions and then review ’em here in the second half of the year. I’m not him.
