Article 31: We have the right to take part in a range of artistic and cultural activities.

We looked at examples of 16th century Italian artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo’s work. He painted portraits where the faces were made up of objects such as flowers, fruit, vegetables and books. We also looked at portrait images by current American designer, Justina Blakeney, for extra inspiration and Alice Bailey who uses wool within her paintings.  Today we created portraits out of different materials found around school.
