Use posterize filter in photoshop or pixler.com tosimplify image to 5 values. I will demo this process in class. You can freehand the simplified image ontoyour 16 X 20 inch illustration board or use the projector.Then cut or tear several pieces of newspaper text to create a palette of tones. The pieces should NOT belarger than an inch. Separate into 5 different values looking at the different tones create via print(density of text, width of letters, size of text, etc).
