We will be learning more about self-portraits in today's lesson. We know that is a self portrait is a picture that you have made of your own face. In this lesson you will be creating a collage self portrait.
A collage is a collection a piece of art made by sticking different materials such as photographs and pieces of paper or fabric on to a backing.
Your collage self portraits will be inspired by a very famous Spanish artist called Pablo Picasso.
This is one of his works of art.
Using magazines and newspapers you will cut out the features that you have on your face and stick them on to a piece of paper to create a wonderful self-portrait. Have fun!
