Wingecarribee Shire residents are invited to take part in a community art project that will feature in Council's Civic Centre Foyer Gallery.
Council's cultural development officer Erin Adams said council had teamed up with a local artist to help residents create self-portraits in a paint by numbers effect.
"Submit a photograph of yourself and we'll transpose it onto a canvas and send you back all the materials you need to create a masterpiece from the comfort of your own home," she said.
Overseeing the project is renowned portrait artist John Michael Brain.

"John has participated in the Archibald Prize for close to 20 years with subjects such as former Governor General Michael Jeffery and ex-Australian cricketer Doug Walters," Erin said.
For $39.95, participants will be posted a pre-prepared canvas along with instructions and materials to complete their portrait.
"Once the Civic Centre re-opens, participants will be invited to display their portraits in the Foyer Gallery representing the many faces of our community," Erin said.
"If you're looking for a new activity to keep you or the kids busy, this is the perfect opportunity to try something new and pick up a few skills."
Registration is open to Southern Highland residents from ages 10 and up. No former experience is necessary.
