2. Daily Objectives 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. 3. 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? 4. ART 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. 5. A R T 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 6. Cutting a Word Out of an Image Open your image in Photoshop. 7.
