Funny Faces and Fabulous Features


Collage, composition, facial feature, form, subject, texture. 


This project teaches children about the concept of the portrait and how the collage technique can be used to make a portrait.


We will explore portraits created by various artists and by using a mirror, we will have a go at drawing our own portrait. 







Blue Marilyn by Andy Warhol




Portrait of Dora Maar by Pablo Picasso



We will then have a look at collages and have a go ourselves. We may create something like this! 


Towards the end of the unit we will use what we have learnt to create a self-portrait using collage like the ones below.
