SELF PORTRAITS OF THE YEAR 1-2s

Observing self-portraits of multitudes of different artists, (including unknowns… and big wigs such as Picasso, Carravagio and Vincent Van Gogh) students in year 1-2 were inspired to create some fantastic works in mixed media for their own self-portraits.

Works were created across 2 weeks. In the first, students mixed their skin colour in acrylic paint and painted in the background. The following week, once dry, students worked over the top of the paint with oil and dry pastels to create detailed features, lifting the work to new heights. Scroll down for some excellent examples from these fine budding young artists.
