let’s make your self-portrait!

10 06 2009

There are many different ways to make a self-portrait – it doesn’t have to be

a traditional drawing or painting of your face.

What will your self-portrait say about you?

Making a self-portrait is a great way to express and explore your identity.

It’s not about what your parents, friends, teachers, brothers or sisters think

you should be. It’s about who you think you are.

Ideas to get you started:

Think of the things that make you what you are:

  • the clothes you wear and the way you look
  • the music you listen to and the music you make
  • the words you write and the images you create
  • what you’ve been through and how you feel now
  • where you live and where you belong
  • the things you love and the things you hate
  • your passions, politics and beliefs
  • your family and friends
  • the things that make you laugh and the things that make you cry
  • the places you like and the places you fear
  • the people you admire and the people you trust
  • the messages you write and the messages you receive

You might think that your bedroom, your clothes, your diary or even some of your favorite
objects, photographs or documents say more about you than any mirror image
could describe.

In your self-portrait you need to be the real you!

Who am I Collage?

The idea is  to do the silhouettes of your head and fill in your head with a
magazine collage of what is going in your brain.

Trace your head on black paper (using overhead projector), then you cut it out, paper
clipped it to white paper, traced the head shape. Then filled in the head shape
with magazine images, then glued the negative black outside piece back on.
