This is a lesson is based on the abstract portrait artists Gabi Trinkaus and Yumi Tomiyasu. The first activity is a portrait collage based on the collage work of Trinkaus. Students work on top of a photograph or drawing of a portrait. The second activity is working on top of a photograph using paint in the style of artist Tomiyasu. PowerPoint includes both a starter to get students thinking about portraits and also a extension task/homework task.

    Really like the ideas here Chris do you have images of how the students work turned out? Great artists to introduce them to a portraiture unit. Thanks!
