      Create abstract art by tracing kids bodies (overlapping one another) and coloring in blocked off shapes.--- This is a lovely idea for a September art class, or for one at the end of the year.

      Figure to Abstraction Workshop - what a brilliant idea for a group project. This could be done with other objects or individual body parts for a smaller scale work. Very cool.

      Figure to Abstraction Workshop - Godshill Primary. Cool idea. Alternative idea: trace students in progression similar to Nude Descending a Staircase, by Marcel Duchamp.
