Our first art focus for the year is creating portraits that are both realistic and cartoonised. In order to do this we have so far had to sketch photos of ourselves onto A3 paper and experiment with finger painting. With the finger painting we were doing today we were exploring how to create depth and different shades using the techniques of dabbing and flicking so that we could represent both the bold lines and the shadows on our faces. Once we are confident that we have mastered this technique, we will begin to work with paint on our A3 sketches.
Enjoy looking at the photos of us during different stages of our learning today.
