6A Art Class: Acrylic painting – portraying female icons

In Art Class the 6A produced some fascinating and impressive works last year. They started out studying the basic anatomy of the human face, exploring the self-portrait and refining their pencil technique. Learning from Albrecht Dürer and the Renaissance Masters, they acquired the age-old technique of the grid-drawing, used to transfer images square by square. Armed with these tools, the students then tackled the challenge of portraying an iconic or otherwise significant female face in acrylic paint on canvas.
