Students are discovering various new approaches to self-portraiture. Starting with a digital photo, the image is altered and embellished – focus is on line, color and texture. Students develop personal approaches to this timeless subject.

Students often want to take group portraits using PhotoBooth - but where is the artistry? These students (all grade 6) worked collaboratively to create a hand-colored image, like in the "old days" before color photography. They used crayons and colored pencils to add color to a black and white image.
