30/10/2018 - Art Skills Week

We are incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to receive first class art lessons from a professional artist, Becky.  We focused on the following skills:


  • Learning the proportions of the face by measuring and comparing
  • Learning how to use different grades of pencil for shading and creating light and dark
  • Learning how to sketch using light pencil marks that can be erased easily for alterations


From our intensive session, we were then able to draw a self-portrait that showcased our newly found skills.

Take a look at some of our wonderful self-portraits below.
