Pastel Portraits!

This week, the students in 3/4C showed off their artistic skills by creating pastel portraits of themselves.

Pastels are a great medium to use and the students experimented with different techniques in their portraits. The rich colours that pastels produce can make your artwork vibrant and really eye-catching.

The aim of the task was for students to completely cover their piece of paper in colour and to create a portrait that represented themselves.

All students demonstrated persistence and confidence when creating their masterpieces. It was not an easy task, but the results are fantastic! They are now displayed in our classroom and they really brighten up our learning space!

Here are 3/4C’s pastel portraits!
