Abstract portraits

29 Oct

As noted previously, my Year 7 students are looking at heroes, heroism, and how heroic qualities are represented. In order to stimulate their creativity and prompt some deep thinking, I posed this quest as their settling/’do now’ activity:  Imagine that you were creating an abstract portrait of a hero in The Princess Bride, what colours, textures and shapes would you include and why? The idea is that students reflect on the way qualities can be represented through different media.
