These class portraits are bursting with character. Posters will be available to buy at the gala! Super cute.
I would like to know how you had the student work made into such a beautiful poster. Are they sold to the parents? Please let me know the process so I can do this at my school.
I had every student create their own self portrait with pencil, sharpie, and chalk pastel (after a brief “how to draw a face” demonstration). I then took a photograph of each portrait (they could have been scanned as well), laid out each image on a grid in photoshop along with the teachers name an year. It takes some time, but worth it. I am lucky enough to have a massive plotter to print out the posters, but the images could be sent to kinko’s or a specialty printing place.
Thank You! I have photoshop but not the printer. I will put it on a USB and see how much it is to have them printed.
HI love the web site. I was actually interested in how you did the beautiful flowers in the vases.
I am an art teacher way over in Perth Western Australia

Each student made their own flower, first by drawing with a sharpie, then collaged with tissue paper and glitter paint. I created the background and vase with oil paint, on canvas, for the wonderful bouquet of flowers. After cutting out the flowers, I glued the flowers down with modge podge.
So every flower was created separately or as a whole bunch? Just love the ideas.
Such a cool idea! Makes me almost wish that I sent my girls to school so that I could suggest this for a fundraiser.
it was a lot of fun and they turned out beautiful!. I love your car painting with the kids!
I love this idea, our classrooms could use a little more emphasis on community and this would be perfect. I’ll have to try it… but on a 0 budget. How much did these cost to get printed?
