Year 8 Extension Task


  1. Draw 3 portraits of people from different parts of the world (e.g. Africa, China, Holland). Use TONE (shading) to show FOR (the shape of the creature). Here is a demonstration.
  2. Look at the work from this artist. Copy part of one of their pictures. Write next to it what story you think the painting is telling about the person (you can’t get this wrong as it’s all about what you think).
  3. Watch this video. Draw and annotate the differences between male and female portraits.
  4. Visit a gallery or an art shop. Buy/take something that shows the artwork on display (postcard, magazine and flier). Glue this in your book and write what you thought of it when you stood in front of it. What did you notice first? Why? Do you think seeing it in real life made it more interesting?
