Who do you think you are?




We have spent a lot of time this week beginning our string portraits. It is quite time consuming but I have been very impressed with your patience. They are looking fabulous – it is work in progress so watch this space for the next stage.

Explain what you have had to do? Are you enjoying this piece of work? What are you proud of?

  1. First we take a picture of our face and then enlarge it, then we use tracing paper to trace around our face, after that we layed the tracing paper turned over on some cardboard and we scribble over the pencil lines to make a face on the cardboard. Once that’s all done you go over the lines on the cardboard with a black marker pen, after this you use scissors to cut string to different lengths and then glue the string on the black lines.

    • Fist we had to get trading paper then we had to get a photo of are face then we had to trace are face then we had to get cardbord then put the trace of are face on to the cardbord then we had to get string and sicors and glue then we had to cover the string in the glue then stick the string on the port rate but fist we had to cut the string to the length of the port rate then we pant it next but we have not got on to that yet

  2. It took a long time to do the art.The piece of work we did is called string art and it took a long time for it to dry and the next bit is to paint the art.

    You will need:

    You need to draw a portrait of yourself with a pen and then you use scissors and cut the string but before you cut the string, You have to measure it with your finger and then cut it and dip it in the glue. After, put it on the pen lines of your face then put your fingers against the string and push them down and stick it on your cardboard

  3. We had to get some tracing paper, then some paper clips and then clip it all together. After that we then tried to trace over a picture of our face which we then showed to a teacher, then we were given a piece of cardboard and then we had to paper clip the tracing paper to it.next we scribbled over the lines to make it go onto the cardboard, then get a black marker pen and draw over the pencil drawing. After that we got some newspaper and cover the whole table with it then we were given a plate of glue and some string. The next step was to measure the length of the string of which bit you want to start with on your face and keep doing that until your done with your string portrait.

    I’m enjoying this piece of work because its showing my creative side and what art I can achieve?

    I am proud of how neat my measuring was and my modelling of my face.

  9. It was tricky and sticky but very fun and creative I helped some and some people helped me.And the hardest bit was when you dip the string dip it in glue because it goes everywhere.but the easiest bit was the hair for me and the collar because it was a triangle shape and I already knew how long the string needed to be.I never knew I was so good at art and drawing and now I know what I can achieve.Drawing my face was easy but getting it to stay still was the only hard bit but Emma helped me so I got throw it.I LOVED IT
