Starting the InsideOut Project with 8th graders

For the second year in a row, Yoshiko Maruiwa and I are collaborating on a 10-week Art Elective inspired by JR’s InsideOut Project. The first assignment was to create an InsideOut Collage where students were asked to communicate what was inside of them – things that you couldn’t necessarily guess just by looking. They took photos of each other, edited them with the magic wand, magnetic lasso, and eraser tools to distill their silhouette and filled either the inside or the outside of their silhouette with symbols and images that they chose to represented them.
