Shadowy faces inspired by Rembrandt

Rembrandt was famous for painting portraits. Photography had not been invented in Rembrandt’s time, so hiring an artist to paint your picture was the only way to have a picture of yourself. Rembrandt liked to use strong lighting to add interest to a face. So, in a classroom only lit by the light from outside Year 6, 4 and 2 sat and drew their friend opposite.
