Grade 1/2 Ancient Egyptian inspired self-portraits

As part of the Ancient Art unit last term, Grade 1/2 students learnt all about ancient Egyptian portraits. The focus was on texture, symmetry and identifying artworks which are asymmetrical. Students learnt about hieroglyphics and wrote their name in hieroglyphics on their artworks. They used sand to create texture and oil and dry pastels for a splash of colour – a true mixed-media artwork! To see these vibrant artworks, please visit the school foyer.
