Exploring Identity

In this unit, Year 6 have studied several artists and explored they express their personalities and identities through their work. We discussed the use of layering and mixed media to represent the complexity and depth of our human personalities and created our own self-portraits.

For the final piece, the children first worked on their backgrounds and then created a textured surface using a range of tools of their choice,, they then posed for images to be recreated and placed onto their background. After this, they chose digital images they wanted to include, to show who they are and what they like.

The final pieces are outstanding Year 6- we are so proud of your work- all unique, amazing and beautifully complex-just like you!
