What is the best way to get over fears/phobias...desensitize!! ha ha
I thought it would be fun to create a board of clown faces using markers & collage. I did ask for happy clowns(though a few students were not feeling especially happy the day we created the clowns). We looked at many examples of clown makeup, hair, and accessories. It is amazing once I started putting the clowns up how many teachers shared with me how they were creeped out by them. I have never associated anything with clowns but fun! Maybe this will help some people get over their fear.
