How To Create a Cut-PaperPortraitA Value Study and Enlargement Technique8th Grade ArtSt. Francis de Sales SchoolMr. Hooks

Cut-Paper PortraitStart with a photographPhoto should have a good amount of contrast

Cut-Paper PortraitImport photo into PhotoshopIf color- Go to image: mode: greyscalesave a copy as greyscale image Go to image: adjustments: posterize.When prompted, save photo with 4 - 5 different values

3Cut-Paper PortraitDecide for yourself if the photo looks more simplified with 4 or 5 levels of value.Save your image and print on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper

Cut-Paper PortraitTrace with pencil around the edges for each shape in photo (remember to simplify edges)Number different areas of value from 1 through 4 (or 5)Nows lets enlarge:

Cut-Paper PortraitEnlarge by creating a one-inch grid across entire surface of 8.5 x 11 paperNumber and letter axes of your grid (letters on one edge -numbers on perpendicular edge -think BATTLESHIP!!)When complete set aside

Cut-Paper PortraitOn a 12 x 18 sheet of white drawing paper, Create a grid with the corresponding number of grid lines. ( for this size the grid will be roughly 1.5) for a 1:1.5 ratio.Number and letter axes of your grid as you did with smaller sheet.

Cut-Paper PortraitTransfer shapes to larger sheet from smaller sheet one square at a time, row by row, or column by column Go over all lines with black bold marker Remember to number values as you did with smaller sheet

Cut-Paper PortraitChoose 4 - 5 colors of construction paper to represent values that you numbered earlier

Cut-Paper PortraitWith masking tape, attach enlarged portrait to light source such as window or light tableIdentify all areas of #1 value choose color to represent value and trace shapes onto construction paper

Cut-Paper PortraitWhen all shapes have been traced use scissors or an xacto knife to cut out each shapePLEASE BE CAREFUL WITH XACTO KNIVES, USE ONLY WITH ADULT SUPERVISION.Cut-Paper PortraitArrange cut pieces of construction paper to rebuild portraitRemember that smaller shapes can be layered over larger shapesUse your original enlargement with black lines as a reference

Cut-Paper PortraitGlue shapes together

CONGRATS!! You now have a finished cut-paper portrait.
