Picasso so famously said...
'Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain one as we grow up'.
Thank goodness Room 2 have not grown up yet because we were able to produce some incredible abstract self portraits with Whaea Dagmar's careful guidance. Check out the photos of our process and outcomes.
|Whaea Dagmar showed us paintings by Picasso|
and talked about what made them different.
|We felt our faces to see where our features were in relation|
to each other.
|Then we drew a self portrait.|
After learning about Picasso, our faces and giving a self portrait a go we got to choose shapes to draw our main features on and glue them where we wanted them.
|Glueing the shapes where we want them.|
|Drawing the outline around the features, lines joining|
them and patterns in the different sections.
Whaea Dagmar used the photocopier to enlarge our self portraits and then it was time to talk about colour choices.
We worked hard and listened to music while we added the colour to our portraits. They are finished now which gives us an enormous sense of achievement but also makes us sad because of the great time we had creating ourselves as Picasso might have.
