Sixth Form Students Experiment with Self Portraits

The Turney School Sixth Form students have been exploring the idea of self-portraits as part of our regular art lessons. We started this work by thinking about which features on our faces are important. These were then drawn and placed on an existing photo of our faces.

This led to some unique self-portraits being completed. One group of students cut up some straws to form the features on their faces. Paint was then rolled onto the surface. A print was taken of the straw interpretation of our features. Finally this was photocopied to produce an original self-portrait.

Other students have been cutting and matching facial features. They have also been tracing around the outline of some of our facial features.
