2019 "Self-portraits"

Here are some of our finished portraits as inspired by Nate Williams (see original post here).

So happy with how they have turned out!

Artist study: Nate Williams

I am using Nate's work as inspiration for our beginning of the year 'me' art activities, thanks to an idea I saw on Pinterest: this is the lesson idea from Kathy at Art Projects for Kids

It will be a great way to do an 'about me' portrait to help my Year Sixes start off the year and brighten up our classroom straight away after the summer break.

I've made this slideshow with examples of his work, and this is also in the class blog-post.

Kathy's example of what we will be making; I will share our results once they are done!

Here are some of the 'in-progress' photos - we decided to use sharpies for the words as well and we are then using watercolour pencils for the colours (much easier than mucking around with actual watercolours!)
