Option #12: Printing with Markers
Option #11: #toonmechallenge
This one is for those of you who want to challenge yourself with digital art. The idea is to take a photograph of yourself and then choose a part of that photograph to "cartoon yourself" using any type of digital app such as Photoshop, Pixlr, PicsArt, etc. You can use a phone, iPad, tablet or computer. I am not the best at this, but you can find a ton of online tutorials. I will link a couple below!! Check out all the samples!
Here is another link to a #toonmechallenge tutorial using Photoshop, but Pixlr would also work for this. https://youtu.be/2svf-8y0_pQ

Option #9: Crayon Collagrph Printmaking
This assignment is something you can do at home using simple materials. We are going to be making a variation of a Collagraph print. A Collagraph is a basic method of printmaking using a board with collage materials glued onto it to form a relief surface with a variety of textures.
The image below was created by an 8th grade student using layered cardboard, then inked up and printed.
This artist, Bonnie Murray, created a collaged block with wallpaper, illustration board, and textured paper. She then inked up the block and hand-printed onto paper.
