Art Week

What an amazing week!  In 3/4B we chose the artist Julian Opie as our inspiration for creating our portraits; Julian is a contemporary English sculptor, painter, printmaker and installation artist. He became famous when he was asked to design the cover for the British band Blur's best of album.  In his portraiture, the human face is characterised by black outlines with flat areas of colour and minimalised details.


We recreated this by starting with our own portrait photos as a basis and then used Julian's characteristic drawing features to draw our portraits before then completing them with paint.  We have now moved on to using a computer art software package, as Julian does, to create our portraits and using laminates to create window art portraits.

Our final pictures - an outstanding effort by all!
