We did our self portraits in school. We were learning about using black and white paper and adding colour to them using a range of chosen materials such as paint, markers crayons and oils.
We learned about a very famous Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. Frida painted over 55 self portraits and added symbols of things she loved or was experiencing in her painting. She was quite ill for most of her life and art helped her to find happiness and express herself.
We drew our portraits with symbols of things that we liked too and took inspiration from Frida. Here are a few of the portraits from some of the children in the class. Can you guess who they may be?
