In this unit of work children explore portraiture. Creative outcomes using apps and artwork produced by the children will provide opportunities for children to explore personal responses to art, make comparisons and evaluations and ask questions. They will examine some of the different reasons why portraits and self-portraits have been painted throughout history and explore the way artists try to convey these messages in their portraits. 

Children will ask questions and look for clues in the portraits that may hint at the personality traits, identity, influence, emotions and life of the sitter. Children will investigate use of composition, space, shape, line and colour while using a range of different materials to create their own self-portraits.
