Picasso self portraits
This half term we have been learning about self-portraits, inspired by different artists. First, we looked at Picasso's self-portrait and learnt that he only used 1 pencil to shade and create shadows.
Van Gogh self portraits
Our next artist that inspired our self-portrait was Van Gogh.
We looked at Van Gogh's self-portrait and learnt that he used lots of different colour pencils, but he made small little lines to make his picture.
During our literacy lessons this term, we read a beautiful book about colour monsters. The story talks about our feelings and how colours can represent a feeling. The children during this piece of work created their own colour monster and wrote descriptive sentences about them. This work was our very first piece of writing in Year 1.
