Interested in Art?

As part of our project about getting to know ourselves as learners, we will be investigating art and portraiture. You will be learning to express yourselves artistically. Part of your study will involve studying famous artists and developing a self portrait in the style of a notable artist who appeals to you.
Will you be a future Gauguin, Rembrandt, Picasso, Degas, David Hockney, Egon Schiele or Andy Warhol?
Who knows.
If you allow yourself to give it a go, you may be surprised....

Here are some links to famous artists:

Portrait lesson activities: [same site again, but a different page]

Intermediate art games: [ditto]

Can you express your musical reactions artistically? [it really is a different page, honest]
