Superhero Magazine

The first session at camp was themed: The He-ro and She-ro in You. Through art projects, games, and performances, we encouraged the campers to find their superhero within. In the art room we made magazine covers, featuring ourselves as the models. Everyone became a star, just like the musicians, athletes, celebrities, politicians, and leaders that we regularly see on magazine covers. I took a photo of each camper in front of a white background. We printed out the glossy photos and then the campers could write and draw on the photo to transform themselves into a superhero character. We all had a lot of fun drawing on our photos and brainstorming superhero names and magazine titles. Each magazine cover came out so unique and creative.
