This type of artwork is created from the text that forms an image when viewed at a distance creating an interplay between text and image. Micrography comes from Greek meaning "small-writing" – "Μικρογραφία." It is also known as microcalligraphy.

As a starter to get the children thinking about who they are, they were given 40 questions to answer. They then traced the outline of themselves from a coloured picture with a pencil and used the answers from the 40 questions to write over the lines in pen. They then rubbed out the pencil lines and were left with a self portrait of themselves created with the words that make up who they are. Below are some examples from those students who managed to finish their work in time.
