Family Art Project: Self-Portraits: Follow My Tracks

Look to the internal navigational systems of swifts and pigeons. Look to the bees, who use remembered landmarks to find their way, and to the sea turtle, who uses the sun for way-finding. And the wood mouse, who forages twigs and leaves to create landmarks for exploration. Then think about the tracks animals leave behind. Using natural and food materials, create your own self-portrait from the tracks that you leave behind, remembering all the places you’ve been and the memories you hold.
