We have been looking at how different artists painted portraits. We chose two that we liked and picked one to mix colours that matched it. We have also created our own self-portrait.
After our portraits were framed and put on display, we chose two that we particularly liked and put a smiley face post-it note on them. We also chose one that we liked but which we thought could be improved and put a different post-it note on that.
