Sometimes I like to bring to you more involved crafts, like when I turned my children’s photos into interchangeable blocks. I also loved turning my kids into their own magnet dolls. Apparently I like to manipulate my children’s images. I’ve done the same things in this craft. From where did this vision come? The principal at my daughter’s school approached me and introduced me to another teacher. He said, “I thought of you because there is an Andy Warhol exhibit at our local museum and his students are going. I thought that since you were an artist and former teacher you might be able to come up with a lesson idea.” I almost laughed out loud, but I composed myself and explained that “artist” was a generous term. We will stick with “psuedo-artist” for now, thank you very much. I did decide to take his challenge to heart and come up with something that would bring the art of Andy Warhol alive to these kids, and out of that stemmed this easy craft you can do with your own kids. We loved it! So, what’s the process?
Take a picture of your child. Hey – take a picture of your dog or yourself. You can do this craft with or for anyone! With Kenzie, I added a hair ribbon, and she already had some fabulous beads on her neck. Abby’s outfit was a bit more simple, but it worked well. You want to make sure you have a pretty plain background and a clear picture.
