Golden Frames

In the wonderful story "The Dot" by Peter Reynolds the art teacher hangs Vashti's dot in a golden frame... 
...and that is where we put our 5th grade portraits.  We created these half and half drawings by finishing our photographs with a pencil drawing (drawing 1/2 a face is a lot less intimidating than drawing a whole face).  When that was done, we painted the background black to unify the photo/non photo sides. 

 Our final step was to frame them in "Gold"en paper.
