Self Portrait Propaganda Poster

Using age-old propaganda methods alongside a modern resource, class members take pictures of themselves and turn them into parodies from another image, or they create entirely new versions of propaganda. They view photographs of past propaganda posters, research online, and use Photoshop to create their one-of-a-kind visual designs.
