This large unit of work asks students to create a mixed media artwork that includes a drawing of a friend and collage pieces that represents their friend’s personality and interests. The collage appears to be ‘exploding’ from the person’s mind! During this project, students photograph a friend, learning about different portrait poses and also taking close-ups of features of the face. They practise drawing features of the face and research and make connections to a successful designer who has made similar work. Making a background that reflects the designers work, they arrange the portrait that they have drawn and collage pieces they have collected into a final outcome.

I set up The Arty Teacher because I have a passion for my subject that I want to share with other art teachers around the world.
I have been a high school art teacher for over 20 years, so I understand what it’s like to be in front of a class of students, often with very different abilities and attitudes.
I wanted to develop resources that would help teachers to bring out the best in every student in every class. I also wanted to free-up staff from time-consuming lesson preparation to let them focus instead on delivering exciting, motivating, dynamic lessons, supported by excellent resources.
