Crazy Hair Day Self Portrait with 5th grade

Crazy Hair Day Self Portrait with 5th grade

5th graders started the year designing a mixed media self portrait using black and white pattern and choosing a color family for a background.  

The color family included primary, secondary, warm, cool, neutral, analogues, complimentary, monochromatic and intermediate. 

I took pictures of students in front of my screen and adjusted the image size in Photoshop. If you don't have Photoshop just be sure to take the students picture up close that way their face fills the page. I had students (try) to strike a pose. I emphasised the importance of contrast for their black and white pattern.
