Students head back to school today. One of my favorite projects to do with my classes was to take a portrait and use a grid to enlarge it. Then I would have the students treat each square in the grid as its own little world. They could try out different colours and textures, as long as they kept the shapes and values the same as they were in the original.
For those heading back to the classroom, have a great year.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!! The image for today’s post is of an etching of my mom. She was born in Ireland and immigrated to Canada when she was nine. Though she never made much of a fuss about the 17th of March, it’s still a good day to remember my favorite Irish lady.
