This workshop is led by museums staff.
Explore personalities, poses, portraits while discovering how colour and composition provide clues about the artist and the sitter.
During this two hour workshop, pupils will:
- find out about why portraits are made
- use paintings to show how portraits can communicate messages about the sitter to the viewer, focusing on pose, expression and clothing
- use paintings and photographs to show how portraits can convey ideas about relationships between people
- develop observation and drawing skills
- develop pupils’ visual vocabulary and their listening and speaking skills
Activities include storytelling, portrait hunting and creating a pastel self-portrait to take home using colour mixing techniques.
