Self-Portrait as a Creature  These incredible creatures are the result of creative self-exploration and problem-solving. The students began by choosing three animals that are like them in peronality, behavior or appearance. Then, they sketched out a creature that combined parts from all three animals. The results were a sort of metaphorical self-portrait - the student represented in the form of a new animal. Each creature is as unique as the student who created it!
