For this #QuickLesson we’ll learn how to use Keynote to trace over a selfie and then we’ll use some clever techniques to transform this pencil drawing into a vivid and vibrant Pop Art Self Portrait, inspired by artists such as Andy Warhol. This tutorial is easy to follow and is guaranteed to create some great fun outcomes by the end.

So grab an iPad – or maybe get your class to grab their iPads – and let’s get started!
