KS1/2 Art - Whole-School Portrait Project

Description

Presented by deputy headteacher and art co-ordinator Peter Sanders, this programme shows how portraiture is extended and developed by all the year groups at Lauriston School in Hackney, east London.

Portraiture is taken beyond the boundaries of drawing and painting by using methods such as face painting in the nursery and large-scale three-dimensional modelling for the older pupils. The programme explores how introducing new skills and working with a wide range of materials can produce diverse results.

One of the many benefits of doing a whole-school art project is that it gives pupils and teachers a chance to see the variety of approaches and outcomes that can spring from a common starting point. It shows different ways of working which can be easily applied to other projects.

The programme includes portrait ideas on:

  • Face painting
  • Making puppets
  • Looking at skin-tone using oil pastels
  • Portraits using clay
  • Three-dimensional mask-making
  • Making three-dimensional portraits with shoeboxes
  • Photography and collage
