What is a portrait?

We asked the question, What is a Portrait?
"A picture of a person".
How do we make a Portrait?
"We draw it, we paint it, we make it".

We took photos of the children holding frames.
"A portrait can be me!"

We set up a portrait provocation using frames,natural material and mirrors. We talked about our faces,looked in the mirror and made awesome compositions of our faces. We were in the frame just like in the photograph!

The children drew their composition.
Throughout  the week the children were given multiple opportunities to draw their portrait and create a composition allowing them to revisit their previous work or create new work based on new understandings.
