This was a project we completed in one double lesson with year 5 students. Following on from looking at proportions of the face students looked at Matisse to inspire them to add a range of medias to their self portrait. Some chose paint worked into with pastel and some used pencil crayon over paint to get some extra detail. I would like to keep working on portraits with this class because as a first attempt they really enjoyed observing themselves in a mirror and transferring it to paper.
Hello everybody, my name is Lyanne Fellows. I am a mum to an 8 year old boy and five year old boy and girl twins. Before moving back to the North East I worked in Dubai as a teacher of Art and Graphic Design and acting Head of Department. This was a move prompted by having twins and not wanting to give up my teaching job. Before having my twins I was head of art and a teacher trainer working for 6 years with a cluster of academies in the Midlands. I am now doing cover work in Newcastle upon Tyne and looking out for a position that is right for me to develop and share my vision with. I am really excited for another fun filled year.
