Art: Portraits

Last week you drew self-portraits. Today we like you to draw some more portraits. You can either:

  1. Draw or paint a portrait of Florence Nightingale. There are some pictures of her attached to this blog for you to look. She often wore a black dress and a white head scarf or bonnet.


  1. Make an abstract portrait. Watch Mrs Pring talk about Picasso’s abstract portraits:  Now make a portrait of someone using this style. A file with some facial features for you to colour is attached to this blog.

As always, if you need help with any of these activities, please do not hesitate to contact us via the class email address.
