Self-Portraits

Thameside Portrait Gallery

Just before half-term, as part of our celebration of World Art Day (15th April), everyone at Thameside designed and painted a self-portrait. Each class decided to focus on different artists or art movements including cubism and abstract art. The children then sketched out a design, painted the background of their canvas and painted their design on top. Some classes used black paint or pen to outline their designs. Parents were invited to come and browse our portrait gallery and purchase each canvas for £1. You can view the portraits in our online gallery.
