Self-portrait in the Land

Draw or paint a landscape self-portrait of yourself - depict your town with all the local landmarks, geographical or architectural, that represent you. If I were to paint a landscape painting that represents me I would include the mountains because I love hiking, the school I used to work at, my house, the hospital where my son was born, the grocery store where I get my food, the library where we go to storytime, the beach, an airplane because that connects me to my family back East etc...  Extensions for the lesson include having the students guess who's painting is whose and writing a key explaining what  each landmark is and why it was included.
