Shape faces
This activity introduces the form of art known as 'cubism' to the class. It firstly shows how artists can use shapes to make abstract portraits or 'funny faces.' Pupils look at a picture of a face painted in the cubist style and discuss shapes used, position of facial features and colours chosen. They then have an opportunity to make their own cubist face by following the on-screen instructions which add abstract facial features one at a time to their portrait. Pupils then have the opportunity of choosing a colour scheme for their picture and are able to print it.
