Year 6 have been looking at different styles of portraits in the last couple of weeks. They have talked about how Picasso used a Cubist style, that was abstract and where art is produced from different angles and using geometric shape. they have contrasted this with Realism and the concept of whether art can look like a photograph. They have thought about how to proportion the face and have used drawing tutorials to sketch their own realistic eyes and lips.
We look forward to seeing their final pieces of work – which are going to be a Cubist/Realist mash-up of styles.
