a digital camera I took a picture of each student, put them
into my computer,
changed each photo to B&W, and adjusted the quality to
show a balanced range of values from light to dark. I then
each image using Adobe Photoshop in order to reduce the number
of values to four: white, light gray, dark gray, and black.
Students were given printouts of their resulting portraits.
taped their photos to a piece of heavy white paper, and a piece
of transfer paper was slid between the face and the white paper.
Each shape of each value was traced and transferred firmly
with a ball point pen. Using their computer printouts as guides,
identified the dark gray shapes on the computer printout and
painted the corresponding shapes on their white papers with
their chosen hue and
gradually lighter values
for the light gray and white shapes. Where it was black on
the computer print out, students mixed and painted the areas
intensity of their hues.
