7th Grade Word Portraits

We started by taking photos of the students in a pose, preferably showing movement or their arms away from hugging their body. While Miss J transfered the photos to outlines in Photoshop, we made lists of words that described ourselves.  Getting suggestions from our friends and looking through the Thesaurus helped increase the length of our list.  Then we traced our outline onto a blank sheet with pencil and started filling in areas with our descriptive words.  Next,  we outlined all the pencil lines with a fine tipped black marker and finally erased the pencil lines.  This was a fun project.  Click on a profile to see it enlarged.
