Face Britain is a project trying to collect self-portraits (an artwork of yourself) to help inspire young people to get arty. You can find ideas for the different styles of self-portraits at galleries and museums, or even online, but here are some ideas on how to make your picture as creative as possible. Abstract mosaic self-portrait Not everyone is naturally good at drawing, so the ancient tradition of mosaics is a great way to capture yourself. You will need • Plain paper • Pencils • Coloured paper • Glue • Scissors

1. Draw the outline of your face. 2. Cut the coloured paper into small squares. 3. Now thinking about the shapes of your features, symmetry and the different colours, fill your face with squares of paper. 4. Be sure to check a mirror from time to time so that your self-portrait is accurate! 5. When you are happy with the likeness, glue down the squares one by one. Extended photograph You can use a photo as the starting point of a self-portrait, to show people what your life is like. You will need • A3 piece of paper or card • A photograph of yourself

Now take a photograph of your self-portrait and get an adult to help you to upload it on to the Face Britain website: facebritain.org.uk

Word ladder: one possible solution is: GOOD, HOOD, HOOK, LOOK, LOCK, LUCK

that you like • Pencils and colouring pens • Glue 1. Stick your photograph in the centre of the paper or card. 2. Think about your favourite hobbies, experiences and interests – all of the things that make you who you are. 3. Draw the outline of some objects that represent your life around the edge of the picture. These pictures could be the musical instrument that you play, your favourite food, where you live, the sport team that you follow – anything! 4. Colour in all of the items and your picture is complete.

I went to the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden to see the Mariinsky Ballet. I thought it was brilliant. My favourite act was called The Firebird. When the Firebird came out with the music and red lights it was like you were in the forest. At the end everyone was shouting “Encore!” and “Bravo!” I’d give it 10/10. Isabel Saeed Maguire, 8
