8th grade Grid Portraits & Photomontage #artclass

By using a grid enlargement technique, 8th grade BWMS took a photo of themselves and the laid a one inch grid over it. The students then had to do a 1:2 ratio and enlarged it on a piece of 9 x 12 paper and they decorated the background with images similar to Colonial Portrait artists.
