Over the past three weeks, Year 3 children have been creating Picasso inspired faces using felt. We started by looking at an array of portraits painted by Picasso and identifying the main features within his work. We recapped how to do running stitch and then learnt how to do cross stitch, blanket stitch and how to attach buttons onto felt.
Once we had designed our abstract faces we then made paper templates which allowed us to cut out our felt pieces accurately. When we were halfway through our project; we stopped to reflect on our work and see if there were any areas we could improve upon. It was a great opportunity to see all the exciting designs coming together!
Our colourful pieces of artwork look fantastic and we are excited that they will be displayed in the KS2 shared area- Picasso would be impressed!
