Yr 6 Platinum Jubilee Art Project - Step 1

Today we have compared and contrasted portraits of the Queen and the children have learnt new vocabulary relating to portraiture (sitter, expression, gesture, posture, attire, commission, etc). We have discussed what her facial expressions tell us about how she is feeling in each portrait and considered what the artists wanted their portraits to communicate. The children then analysed a selection of portraits from different points in the Queen's life and practised their sketching technique, including focus on shading and proportion.
