Although not in visual arts, I think Michael Jackson in music and dance
has taken that even one more step.

I really like the idea and can't help but think students will really
enjoy their work. Putting themselves into the picture gives them reason
to do quality work to represent the best of themselves.

Dali may have done some of that in his life as well, both as a painter
and as a person. I hope you get more help from others, but from me you
do get praise for a great idea.
