Collage Portraits – Year 8

Collage portraitsA simple but effective way to create portrait work. Pupils traced the outlines of their face onto the boards using carbon paper and a photograph of themselves. They then filled each selection with various paper based collage materials. Once they had filled all the white gaps they went back to their original images and using acetate sheets and a permanent pen they traced of the details of their face and shoulders. The acetate was finally stuck over their collage using a glue stick.
