Transcript of ART Web view Throughout time people have painted, drawn, sculpted or photographed portraits as a way
Welcome to Week One Art- Portraits.
Throughout time people have painted, drawn, sculpted or photographed portraits as a way of recording themselves and those around them. Portraits can show our true selves or an image we would like to convey. They can also ‘speak’ of the time in which they were painted.
One of my favourite portraits is Self-Portrait by Jean-Michel Basquiat.
I like the idea of the drawing over the photograph to show what could be underneath. Have a go at the tasks below and upload some of your fantastic efforts to (there will be an email address, not yours but a new art one).
Take a look at these portraits by famous artists.

What else can you draw in this way? Don’t forget to sign your masterpieces!
