  • Learning OutcomeAll will mind map their new project and know what a portrait is.All will do drawing studies of the nose and lips.

    Most pupils learn what tone is and use 2 tones.Some will use 3 tones and use shading very smoothly.

  • Why has Portraiture been used in the past?Sign of wealth.Capture a physical likeness to send to a person they may wish to marry.However some portraits were made to show an idealised (air brushed) image of the person so they appeared better looking.Showing a physical presence in a building or space when they are absent.

  • Where can portraiture be found today?

  • BUT Why do we still use the painted portrait?To observe and understand physical proportion.Explore human expression.Patience through the painting process.A painting is a one off piece and can never be painted the same way again.Where as a digital photo is one of many and can easily be forgotten.
