About ‘Me & My Monster’:  

In this project, kids are inspired by Shel Silverstein’s poems in,‘Don’t Blump the Glump”. They brainstorm a monster who can help them do something, then create a poem about their monster using descriptive language. They draw a self-portrait of themselves with their monster, and then alter their poem to enhance the meaning through visual emphasis.

There is a writing component, so younger students will need some adult support to successfully complete this project. 

A note that the Doodles Academy curriculum encourages a growth mindset by focusing on process over product: projects are designed to allow students to tell their own stories and individualize art projects. This creates a more engaging and more challenging environment where students learn to solve their own problems rather than copying a model.

 A typical day in the project:

Students watch a video giving them context and demonstrations.

Students receive instructions and work on their art independently.

…and more:

-Guardians will receive emails detailing concepts they can discuss with their children. 

-After the final lesson, students will submit a photo of their artwork and an artist statement.
