Ever thought what it would be like to put yourself as the main subject in a famous painting? We thought this would be a fun task for you to do over the half term break. Here is your chance to get the creative juices flowing, use your imagination and have some fun!
Can you try to recreate a famous painting or artwork by any artist using just what you have at home? Use props, household objects, yourself, your family and even your pets! Then take a photo.
The project was first started by the Getty Museum in LA. It is open to staff and students! Have a look at some of the ideas from a few teachers and their families. There are also lots of ideas online OR you could pick your favourite artwork OR you could visit a gallery virtually. We can’t visit art galleries right now, so you could use the amazing ‘Google Arts & Culture’ to explore many museums and galleries from your home.
Once you have chosen your artwork, reacreate it with your own version. Remember to ask whoever is at home if you want to use items and objects. We don’t want any family heirlooms, favourite objects or any clothing damaged beyond repair!

If possible, could you please ask your parents or guardians to email me the photo and then I can phone them to confirm they give their permission.
NB: It’s important to make sure your parent or guardian knows and agrees to you sharing the picture as it will go on the school website and may be used on promotional material.
Remember to include the following:
1. Your NAME and FORM/YEAR GROUP
2. The TITLE of the painting you have recreated, the ARTIST and the DATE.
3. Try to have a copy of the real artwork alongside your version.
We look forward to seeing what you can CREATE!
Mrs Wycherley, Head of Art
