After school art: self portraits

P1060453P1060458P1060451P1060455These next three art clubs are all about faces. Tonight we started with self portraits. The children used mirrors to create carefully observed contour drawings in charcoal. Then as a group we experimented with ways to make marks and texture using charcoal and pastels. They then put their new skills and ideas together with some fantastically expressive self portraits. I loved seeing all 20 lined up ready to go home.
