Autumn 1: Self Portraits

This half-term, Year 1 have been working on self-portraits. After looking at some portraits and self-portrait to discuss the difference between them, they started off taking self-portrait photography inspired by the artist Cindy Sherman. These photos also acted as the source material for lots of the work that followed. They then worked on collages first to explored different materials and to become more familiar with all the features of the face. Before creating collages and drawing inspired by the portraits of Pablo Picasso. After this, the class focused on practicing more realistic facial features and then created half drawing/half photo self-portraits. Finally, using the Cindy Sherman inspired photos they created photo weaving collages loosely inspired by the work of Jason Chen.
