Over the next few days, have a go at completing this Art project.

We have been learning about David Hockney’s landscape paintings. The National Portrait Gallery has an exhibition of his portraits and you can watch a video of some them here: https://www.npg.org.uk/whatson/david-hockney-drawing-from-life/exhibition.

Use his portraits as inspiration for some of your own.

Can you create a self-portrait and then a portrait of someone who you live with? Hockney used pencils, paints and photographs in his work and you can use whatever is available in your home. 

Some top tips on drawing portraits can be found here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/how-to-draw-a-portrait/zk28qp3
