Year 5 & 6

At the beginning of each year, the grade 5/6 children are invited to draw portraits of new staff members and some of the current staff members. Each staff member chooses which portrait they would like to represent them based on 'Striving for Accuracy.' The children were given many tips about how to draw more realistically, using a formula to set up the positioning of all facial features. We then did a great deal of looking at the very smallest of details, in order to get the portrait as accurate as possible. Can you work out which staff member is which?

 Poster paints were used as a wash for the background of their art work. It was then left up 
 to their own imaginations as to what sort of images would make up the silhouettes. Some
 beautiful moods have been created.
