Grade 6 Expressionist Portraits

During this unit the students were introduced to the rules of portraiture and discovered a variety of ways that artists communicate their emotions. After studying their chosen artist they then had to apply the artist’s techniques to their own self portrait.

Can you guess the mood which the students are trying to communicate? Can you guess the artist they were inspired from, for example: Vincent Van Gogh, Andy Warhol, Freda Kahlo and Picasso?

Some students have finished their paintings while others are still working. I will add more photos when they are all complete.
