What is a portrait?
Spend a bit of time looking at the National Portrait Gallery (See link below)
Are there any portraits you particularly liked / any you didn't like?
What do you think to this portrait?
What medium do you think has been used?
What skills do you think you would need to rehearse to produce something similar?
Choose your model. This should be someone who inspires you, a real hero in your home.
You might like to note why you chose them as your model and why they are special to you.
