• I will be able to outline the important events in my life using a sequencing map.
• I will be able to create a self-portrait that answers the question, "Who am I?" using Photoshop and previous reflections.
Remember to answer the following
questions in your design:• Who am I?
• What are the distinctive things that make me "me"?
• How do I want people to see me?
• How can I express my many different sides?
• How can I reinvent myself for various purposes or times in my life?
• How am I changing from day to day or year to year?
• Who do I want to become?
Look at how this image combines images in a collage with letters that make up a word.
You need to come up with a word that best describes you as a person and incorporate it into your collage. Your images need to have a unified look to them. You might use the hue/saturation tool to get this unified look. The letters of your word should look intentional in the design like this example.
1. Consider using individual letters.2. Think about cutting out images to
fit in the shape of the letters.3. Or maybe a word cut out of an
image is better…
