Year five created a Chuck Close inspired portrait of Nelson Mandela, the work followed on from their ‘Black History’ lessons. All squares or parts of squares that needed to be dark were coloured with darker secondary, tertiary or shaded hues (colors mixed with black). The others were coloured bright or tinted hues (colors that are mixed with white). The children filled their sections with intricate patterns, applying their shading skills. Finally, they arranged their sections to form the final image.
