I just love watching students draw their portraits. Wouldn’t it be great for students to complete a self portrait during each year of Visual Arts to look back on at the end of Grade 6?
Prep B created the above self portraits during their first lesson. We talked about what a portrait actually is and all of the features you need to include when you are drawing one.
The students did a fantastic job! They were very proud of their work.
Last week I asked the students to imagine that they were travelling into space to see the moon. I provided each child with an astronaut helmet template to paste around their portrait. The students were then asked to create a space background using chalk pastels. Love the results!
