Everything is Awesome- Lego YAM Bulletin Board

 The Youth Art Month bulletin board at my primary school is Lego themed. Ever since I watched the Lego Movie, I've been wanting to use the "Everything is Awesome" theme for art. This was a good chance!
I downloaded a free Lego font to print off the phrase. Big time saver.
To create the Lego mini figures, I posed an actual figure, photographed it in three positions, projected it onto big construction paper, and traced. My student teacher and I added color with color sticks and cut them out. I made a Lego brick template to trace for the top row and cut rectangles in different lengths to create the rest of the wall. I let early finishers choose a brick on which to write why they like art or why it's important before I stapled them onto the bulletin board.

Here are a few of the students' bricks.
"I care about art because it is fun and you get to paint. It is real fun. Everyone has good art. No one draws bad and draws good. It really means a lot to me and everyone come in peace. It is a lot of fun. It is full of fun."
