Tree of Self

Students were asked to draw on white paper: a favorite food, a pet or a favorite animal, a favorite place or a place a student wanted to visit, two objects- anything, another person- anyone! (you get the idea- you can make your own rules). All of these were to be drawn within a shape. These shapes were then cut out and all were supposed to be mounted (framed) on something (foam, solid paper, patterned paper...) These were then connected to a tree, or a web-like form. The students did not come up with many alternatives- but I asked them to think of other webs (nets...networks...pipes connected to other pipes...anyway). I asked for textured backgrounds (students chose the technique and media).
