The Portrait Party Box


Here we take inspiration from some of the masters of portrait painting: Frida Kahlo, Pablo Picasso and Amedeo Modigliani. Each of these artists shows us different styles and different materials that can be used to create a face.

The story of the Portrait Party box

Here we explore some new artistic mediums; from multimedia with Frida Kahlo; water colours with Pablo Picasso; and oil pastels with Amedeo Modigliani. The best way to learn how to draw a face is to try it. First, try to draw your friend’s face, or a face from a book, or a famous artist… and then try to draw your own! We’re sure you’ll feel inspired, and we hope you’ll also have lots of fun!
