This is Malcolm McCrae, an AWESOME air brush author, artist, and educational speaker! He let us make our own airbrush creations and inspired me to get one for my classroom.

Graffiti Me App
One of my favorite workshops was about how this teacher used the "Graffiti Me" App to create these big bold self portraits! She just used the App to take a picture of her students. They made a bold background with bright colors on a poster board.
Then they used a projector to trace and paint their portraits
Here is some student artwork that is sure to inspire you!!
