2 hour class
Week 1: A Self Portrait with a Daemon (Inspiration taken from The Golden Compass book)
Students will consider how to build a self portrait that expands their particular character. Their portrait will include an animal of their liking with reference to high quality photos and prints.
They will draw and paint a self portrait using a range of images to support their own interpretations. The young artists will develop confidence and the ability to be creative by improving their observational skills. They will be encouraged to learn how to depict themselves accurately with guidance on facial measurements, proportion and shape.
