The following resources on portraits and self-portraits provide an exciting opportunity for students to consider what sort of visual statements they can present about themselves.
These fun and inspiring projects cover a range of processes that aim to challenge preconceived ideas of what a portrait can be and to encourage learners to develop their creative skills through experimentation with a wide variety of media. As well as exploring the self-portrait, there are activities that offer students a chance to draw each other and two of the projects celebrate working together, by collecting individual portraits to make a large group portrait.
