8th grade students learned how to draw proportional portraits in order to illustrate not only their faces, but also create a work of art that captured their inner most fears about themselves. To do this, students view portions of Glee’s Season 2’s Episode 18 ( http://www.videobb.com/watch_video.php?v=2FPuXSb9NZRQ) which addressed acceptance and Lady Gaga. Students also watched a YouTube film (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zo1b78vzvqE) depicting how to mimic Lady Gaga’s Skeleton image portrayed in her ‘Born This Way’ Music Video. Students then created a self portrait which transformed into a skeleton a midst a background which listed aspects about themselves which they appreciate as well as despise.
