Students design a tee-shirt featuring a descriptive word about themselves, utilizing their own custom Pattern Fill in Photoshop created from a scanned hand-made collage. Students create, print, and iron on their design to a tee-shirt. This project is a great follow-up to learning about production design as an art career (as laid out in the lesson plan included in this product). What students love even more is that they get a chance to wear their art around school!
-Magazines to cut up
- 8 ½ x 11 Iron-on transfer sheets (can fit 2 words on one sheet)
