Modigliani Portraits - 3/4

Here are the completed Modigliani Portraits done by my 3/4 students. I am so very proud of their effort. Each year my students' talents absolutely astounds me. This week we have been reflecting and respond on our art work. Most students were able to articulate how they achieved a Modigliani portrait. Outstanding Art 3/4s!

Prep - Self Portraits

The Preps have been busy painting their self-portraits. We have been focusing on trying to make our portraits look realistic. We used skin colour paint for our faces. For this project, the students didn't mix colours.

Although some students said: "But Mrs P, my skin is brown!" So we mixed appropriate colours.

What a great effort by all. Well done Preps!
