Family Portraits in 4th Class

For the last few weeks some children in 4th class have been doing art after school with artists Paddy Lennon and Jo Kimmins. We have been focussing on family portraits.

 First, we looked at a slide show of a few famous family portraits. We discussed backgrounds and smaller details like clothes, hairstyles and whether to include family pets or not. Then Paddy gave us a few tips on how to draw outlines for bodies. We decided where to position each family member. Next, we added in details to make our families more life-like. Paddy showed us how to divide the face so that the facial features were balanced.

We have been learning lots of skills and tips from the two artists and the classes have been spectacularly enjoyable.  Have a look at the photos to see how the work progressed and the final result.
