  Look at artists who express strong ideas and feelings in their portraits.
  Explore and research the artist’s processes – can the children use these
   methods imaginatively in their own work?
 Set up a variety of situations for children to express different feelings
   and emotions to use as a basis for their own work e.g.
Use convex and concave mirrors and draw their reflections.
Press their faces against windows carefully and draw each other’s distorted
faces.
Enlarge their drawings using a photocopier or scan images and distort using
Photoshop or see link in Usborne Art Ideas drawing faces book.
 Exaggerate and extend their drawings to intensify the feelings.
 Discuss how a face shows feelings and play with simple change of lines to
   create expression (see unit pack).
 Use mask making, adapting hollow forms in clay or reclaimed materials to
   build 3D representations of feelings and expressions.
 Link to drama activities and photography.
