Creating Your Self Portraits
After you have completed your “Developing My Portrait” Worksheet, begin collecting materials you would like to use.
1
Carefully cutout your portrait removing any background that you do no want. It is okay to leave some background and other people in your image.
2
Select a piece of paper to use as your background. It can be a white or colored paper. You could even glue 2 together to have more space to create!
3
Decide what your background will look like.
4
For my example, I will be creating an abstract collage that includes magazine images as well as collaged objects/pictures that I create.
5
Begin cutting out and constructing your background. Do not glue anything yet !!
6
Play around the the cut outs like a puzzle. See where you might like to place everything. We aren’t gluing yet!
7
Let’s stop there for now! Make sure you put all the pieces away safely in your art kit for next time!
