Year 6

Self Portraits

Portraits are a very hard thing to draw, but they give us more than just a representation of how someone looks. Students practised drawing various parts of the body including eyes and hands. They explored Picasso’s cubism style in bright colours and also focused on their own photo and used half of the image to recreate themselves in lead pencil only. Some students bravely chose to sketch their whole face.

3D Birds

Using artist Barbara Kobylinska as inspiration students used recycled plastic drink bottles as the base for their 3D birds. They covered them in papier maché, moulding the head and neck shape. They then painted them in the style of one of 6 major artists including Jackson Pollock, Vincent Van Gogh and Romero Britt. Varnish was applied as the final step.
