Day 134 - Awesome Art

Day 134 - Awesome Art, originally uploaded by dragonsinger.

I'm not the teacher for these - it's my class but my CRT teacher did this. Kids were asked to choose a prominent feature of their face and then draw their face exaggerating that feature. They then had to colour using pastel - but only use tones of the same colour. Then the edges were done with pva mixed with black ink stuff that comes in squeezy bottles so that it's a like lead lighting; then background dyed and picture mounted.


  1. Jo, they are STUNNING!!!! What age are the artists?

  2. Thanks Jo, awesome work! I love the shades!!!

  3. One of the things I love about having another teacher's input into the programme is, it gives me a chance to look at the children's work as an outsider - a little bit if distance is good from time to time.
    I think I tend to celebrate their successes more, when I haven't been the one to set the process in motion.

  4. And you learn so much from other teacher's work!
