Exaggeration and Emotions in Art and Theater Ms. Leaphart is working with Flynn teaching artist Susanna Olson to integrate theater activities with the visual art curriculum. As part of that collaboration, students in the 2nd grade are embarking on an art & theater unit about showing emotions. They are learning to use their faces and bodies to show different feelings, and they are transferring that learning to their visual art. Using cut paper and marker, the students explored how moving the eyebrows and mouth on a face can change an expression entirely. Check out their EXAGGERATED expressions!
