In preparation for creating your own Tudor portraits, you will be learning how to draw different parts of faces today.

Watch the videos, which explain step by step how to draw the different parts of a face. Use a pencil and plain paper. This is a sketching task so you might want to have more than one go at drawing some of parts of the face to perfect your drawings. I don’t expect you to draw a full face today – I just want you to practice each individual part of the face.

Well done Year 3. You have completed today’s home learning. Only 3 days of home learning left to complete! You can do it! Keep working hard!
