Term 1 Week 7

Our reception and years 1 to 4 artists produced some fantastic self portraits this week! They each started with a black and white photo of their face, then embellished it using a variety of different textiles. Some artists turned themselves into animals, others became circus performers. We also saw some excellent hairstyles, including moustaches and beards!

Amber & Turquoise Class

Magenta & Violet Class

Emerald Class

Our year 5 and 6 artists looked at the work of Stacey Page, a mixed media artist from Georgia, USA, who embroiders intricate patterns over vintage photographs (you can see examples of her work here). We had a go at producing our own versions, working onto a photo of ourselves printed onto a piece of cotton. We got some great results!
