Back to School Pictures

Other people take pictures of their children and post them gratuitously for all the world to see.
I take pictures of my children, print them out, and have them cut them up.

Then, I have them trade pieces of their faces.

I have them paint and color all over the pieces.

Then, I glue them back together.

And just for fun, I make the adults participate in the art making.

This project was inspired by the way I could only see 1/4 of my face in the mirror of my visor while driving down the road.


  1. Kristina, what a great idea! I would like to try this with Wm. Can you tell me what you used? Card stock or a real photo?

  2. I printed it in black and white on regular paper, then glued it to card stock. Most of my people chose to use chalk pastels or oil pastels, so the heavier paper wasn't needed for paint. Also, before I printed, I lightened the picture.


Please, be respectful. We're all friends here. We can disagree with respect.
