“Giftedness is not what you do or how hard you work. It is who you are. You think differently. You experience life intensely. You care about injustice. You seek meaning. You appreciate and strive for the exquisite. You are painfully sensitive. You are extremely complex. You cherish integrity. Your truth-telling has gotten you in trouble. Should 98% of the population find you odd, seek the company of those who love you just the way you are. You are not broken. You do not need to be fixed. You are utterly fascinating. Trust yourself!”

Pop Art Easter Icons

This week I saw an adorable bunny on my feed on Facebook so I had to find out how to make my own! You can read the original post here. I showed my students the two I created and they were excited to make their own Pop Art Easter Icons.

The students found this project super easy to recreate. I provided them with some stencils I created by blowing up some FREE Easter clip art I downloaded from TpT. I chose images I thought the students would enjoy recreating. They traced the outlines of the images and then added the details using black markers. Links TPT stores for FREE images of the most popular images used by my students.  I just blew them up to 8.5 x 11 and printed Spring Chicks, Easter Peeps, Easter Clipart. You can find the link to the bunny in the original post linked above.

After doing the black line designs, students cut the images into pieces and glued them to neon card stock or to scrap book paper I had in my classroom.

I printed and pre-cut the inside of the eyeglasses template on neon card stock. Students could choose the colour they wanted to complete their piece.
