When you think of self-portrait, you probably think of a classically posed figure looking out of the picture plane. But self-portraits are as varied as the artists who create them.
Seahawk Arts students in grades three through five were given the challenge of creating a self-portrait, with a Franklin County Seahawk theme, in the likes of a Snapchat face tracking filter app. The animated phone app adorns animated features onto the front-facing camera phone screen when posing for a selfie or group photo.
Fourth grade art student Lilly Dorman, a self-proclaimed cartoon animator, chose to present her self-portrait as an FCS “Seahawk” with moving parts. Lilly’s snap chat animation includes colorful Seahawk feathers that move up and down, blinking eyes and a squawking beak when she opens her mouth.
