Fabulous Faces art activities

Fabulous Faces

The Whorouly Art Van has started the year with a unit on Portraiture and Faces.

Students have been experimenting with creating faces with rocks, plastic fruit and even their own bodies

………And we have experimented with creating expression too



We have looked at the 16 th century Italian Artist, Guieseppe Arcimboldo whose portraits represent the seasons and were made up entirely of fruit and vegetables. Amazing!


And after completing some tricky Arcimboldo puzzles and creating more faces out of plastic fruit, puzzle pieces and wooden blocks, students began their collages.

We started with photocopies of tree textures, students cut out their face shapes, some deciding to include the neck and shoulder as well. They selected  pictures from nature which included shells, flowers, rocks, sticks and eggs and experimented with placement and facial expression.


The results were fantastic!

We have such creative students in our country schools!
