Pieces Of Me
The artworks are an unconventional self-portrait exploration, a culmination of learning from Year 6 students in Visual Arts lessons looking into how identity can be portrayed.
Students analysed examples of Archibald Prize portraits throughout history. They identified how artists tell a story of a person not just through appearance, but also colour, symbols, setting, composition and other artistic techniques.
Each student developed their own original concept to encapsulate their identity and selected materials that they felt best represented their idea. The result is a wide variety of interpretations of the theme, each telling an authentic and unique story of the student-artist.
This event is part of the DARE – Year 6 Graduate Diploma.
