At Saint Patrick’s Catholic Primary School, we use the PlanBee Scheme for Art.
Art Week – ‘This is Me’
Our first art week focused on self-portraits. We began our topic by learning who Leonardo Da Vinci was and why he was famous during the Renaissance. We explored his paintings and drawings and identified how he used perspective and composition in his artwork. We explored his drawing style and colour choice and then created our own self-portrait in that style.
"We used shading, hatching and curved hatching to create a self-portrait in the style of Leonardo da Vinci." Kaan
"Da Vinci created lots of religious paintings like The Last Supper" Jacob
"I used different darker colours for my background, like da Vinci did." Isabella
