Experimental self portrait (KS4)

Experimental self portrait (KS4)

These lessons are planned to help students develop three self portraits, creating a Pop Art style painting, a stencil print and a line and pattern based piece using the sgfraffito technique. The PowerPoint includes, do now tasks, starters and the three main tasks, including an example of each task and an assessment criteria. The work could either be completed as part of an identity/portrait project or as a mini project, it works as a good task to help build on media experimentation and techniques. I have also included the instructions on how to develop the students photo(s) on Adobe Photoshop, these are student friendly and include screen shots of the steps taken, so that students can work independently on Photoshop. They explain how to create a Pop Art style outcome, that students can then draw out and paint. As well as creating a basic stencil design of their faces, which can then be cut out and used to print with.
