Acquisition of Knowledge and Skills

Self Portraits 


The children had sessions lead by an artist to practise sketching using light marks and using the correct proportions. All children, looked at sketching mouths, noses, hair, eyes, ears, eyebrows and the shape of the face.


During these sessions the children acquired various skills such as: recognising edges, lines, angles, proportion, perspective, shadows, shading and tone.
