The Junior Art Extension Class has been looking at the elusive and mysterious textile works of artist Soy Un Babar. Students have been blind folded and asked to draw a series of portraits in grey lead and they have also created overlapping face portraits, in which they weren’t allowed to take their pencil off the paper. After doing weeks of developmental work, the students then created a portrait sketch which they transferred on to cotton and used cold wax and fabric dyes to add colour and line to their faces. In the coming weeks, students will be using fabric markers to add fine detail to the portraits and will be embroiding over the faces with colourful thread. Here are some snaps from the developmental phases.
