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

We have been looking at some famous self-portraits during our art lessons this half term by well-known artists such as Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso and Frida Kahlo.

We used photographs of ourselves to help create a ‘split face’ portrait. We began by working on placement of features and considering their proportions. We have so far sketched our portrait and are now adding coloured patterned backgrounds to add contrast, and using complimentary colours like we used in the autumn term when studying Francessco Lietti and last term when we studied the work of Isaaih Zagar.
