Teachers' Notes

Resource created by Museums Sheffield.

This resource uses the collection of Museums Sheffield to look at portraits and how to draw them, including facial proportions and expressions.

You can also download a page of activity suggestions to encourage close observation of a portrait, which can be done in a gallery or classroom setting - each takes between 10 – 15 minutes.
