Art - I.D Portraits
4 February 2020

Following our theme of Identity, Class 3 have produced some stunning artwork. We began by looking at our own facial features then sketching them in the correct proportions. We then created a half self- portrait using chalk and charcoal in the style of realism.

We evaluated our finished artwork and talked about how our images portrayed our unique, individual identities.
