Life sized portraits
It ii always fun to work on a big scale so I bought a roll of cheap wallpaper and drew round E, G and I. We then stuck them to the wall and the girls coloured them in as well as adding accessories! I love E's self-drawn wings, careful eyes and her ears at the top of her head (she is missing an arm as she was cutting hers out she decided she didn't want it). G has a dog and a thing to throw balls for the dog and I has a handbag and high heals!
It was great for thinking about the position and shape of features and we talked about what things they would have in their picture so people would know something about them and emotions.
