Thanks for the idea. I want to try a large group one on canvas. This is a
good method to follow. Thanks, Susan in Ohio

> I love your ideas. We did a similar project at a college I attended,
>we picked 3 professors as subjects. The class was put into 3 groups and
>with black & white head & shoulder photos of the professors on a grid. We
>made a wooden frame approx. 4ft. X 6 ft. and stretched our own canvas over
>it. It would be easier if you could go with 1/2 inch plywood. One group
>old fabric as their medium (black, white and shades of gray). One group
>1 inch square pieces of paper cut and painted black, white & shades of
>gray,(it looked like computer pixels. Our group used paper painted black,
>white and shades of gray.We tore the paper in nugget sized chunks &
>them for a more organic look. We all used glue to adhere the pieces to the
>canvas. This could also be done in color. They turned out great and have
>continued this annually with new teachers as models. Good luck!
