We were inspired by the Deep Space Sparkle website to make these Egyptian portraits. Firstly we experimented with oil pastels in our sketch books to make a range of patterns to decorate our Egyptians with.
Later I did a directed drawing with the children to make an Egyptian face and head dress. The children then used some of their pattern ideas to decorate the piece. Once they were complete I cut the faces out and mounted them on a colourful backing paper.
