Fun at IUP

This week at IUP the students were given some collage materials and facial expressions. With very little encouragement and some teamwork, each group created a "face" with foam and also a word to describe the facial expression. Reading facial expressions in real life can prove a daunting task and to realize the expression of a student who simply does not comprehend or "get it" is very helpful for anyone.

After this simple exercise, we then went through magazines, picked our favorite expression and found words to create a collage and cinquain poem. Next week we are working in clay and creating tiles with words in our effort to get some practice in before working on our own mosaic collage.
