Dear year 6,
Well done for persevering through the first week!
Today for art, you are going to be continuing with the mind map and study sketches.
If you haven't finished the mind map or sketches, please use this time to make a detailed mind map and LOTS of sketches.
Remember, your mind map needs to be more than words and straight lines. It needs to have materials that you might use, stuck on it. There should be pictures and doodles of your ideas. Make it a visual and tactile mind map. It should reflect your mind- thats why its called a mind map.
Your sketches need to be a study of yourself. It does not need to be perfect but you need to do multiple sketches so that you have something to look at when you are making the self-portrait. If you have many sketches of yourself, it makes it a lot easier to do your final piece. Remember: Close up of eyes, hands, hair, mouth, shoulder, ear, and your favourite position. You are studying your reflection- this is why it is called a study sketch.
YOU HAVE 2 WEEKS FOR THIS PROJECT
PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL YOUR PROCESS TO ME OR YOUR TEACHERS!
DO NOT DO THIS IN YOUR HOME LEARNING BOOK. USE A SCRAP PIECE OF PAPER.
YOU WILL PRESENT THIS WHEN YOU COME BACK!
Finally, enjoy the process and create something beautiful. You are in charge of your outcome.
All the best,
