On Fridays with Ms.Hulston we have been busy doing lots of learning through art. We have explored making marks with different pencils, graphite sticks, and charcoal. We then explored marks in colour, using pastels and oil pastels. We tried drawing self-portraits in lots of different ways, some in thirty seconds, some with our eyes closed, some with our non-dominant hand. We then used mirrors and learnt how to really look closely at our faces, at our skin tone and our features and drew some amazing self-portraits in pencil, then in colour. We looked at lots of different self portraits made by artists and discussed how they made the art works and how the portraits made us feel.
