This year I am teaching two sections of the Mixed Media class.  One section chose to take things in a different direction all semester long and are making everyone of their artworks for the semester as self portraits.  They quickly took root in our Social Media Cathedral Window and took on a really wonderful mosaic look.

We initially took selfies on “photobooth” and then used picmonkey to edit down our photos using the warhol and posterize effects.

We then used a thick sharpie to create the ‘caming’ around our images and then followed the process outlined from the previous post.
