KS3 Art & Design - Visiting a Museum, Gallery or Site; Unit 7A – Self Image

Studying portraiture is a wonderful way for pupils to investigate the work of other artists, develop skills and conceptual understanding as well as explore ideas around their own identity.

This resource provides an insight into how four artists have explored a wide range of issues and ideas by turning their attention upon themselves or their families.

The Ferens Art Gallery has a rich and varied collection of portraiture which can be particularly relevant to Art & Design, KS 3, Unit 7A Self Image where ‘pupils explore their personal identity’.

Heritage Learning offers a range of led sessions at the Ferens Art Gallery. Visit the Ferens Art Gallery page for details of led sessions at the gallery to complement this subject.
