Miss Sharp's Art Room

unleash your inner artist

Grade 1/2 Weekly Round Up


Art is fun because we get to paint and draw fun stuff. We are making self portraits. We are up to painting. A good painter tries to be neat and is sensible. I’m painting my face in a skin colour. I am really happy with my drawing of my self portrait. Fletcher (Reporter)


I have been learning to do self portraits. I learnt that we can sometimes draw just our face and not our full body. When we have finished painting we will do a background with coloured squares. I am really happy about the size of my face. I didn’t do it too big. I’m making sure that my painting goes only on my portrait. The hardest thing to do is to paint it because when you paint it sometimes goes over the lines where you don’t want it to go. Rishi (Focus Student)

Today we glued little squares to a white piece of paper to make a background. We finished painting our self portraits. I added a bit more yellow to my painting. It’s a fun thing to do. Rhiannon (Reporter)


I have learnt that I need to take my time when painting so that I can get better at it.  If you take your time it looks better because it’s neat and your paint brush is going in the one line. I am really happy that I have done my face round. The hardest thing to do was to paint my eyes. I’m enjoying Art a lot. Aleara (Focus Student)

Photographer – William


We are painting and drawing self portraits and we’re sticking on pieces of coloured paper to make our background. We talked about being a good artist. I said a good artist paints neatly. I tried to paint neatly. I’m really happy with my self portrait. Levi DH (Reporter)


I feel happy that I am sticking things on neatly. I have improved my drawing because I got feedbackand added more things to my self portrait. William gave me feedback that I could make my head bigger so I did. I have been trying to help other people and do the right thing and listen to other people’s feedback. Ethan (Focus Student)

There’s lots of fun stuff happening in Art at the moment. We have been painting, drawing, doing some listening. Our grade are working really well on their art. We are trying to get 6 smiley faces on the ArtSmart board. I have finished my work so I am helping Riley finish his.  Lucas (Reporter)


I’ve learnt how to make a self portrait. A self portrait is where you make a picture of yourself. We are doing a colourful background. We used squares of paper. I’m really proud of how I stayed in the lines when I was painting my self portrait. I was trying hard to stay in the lines and not go out of the lines. Jakobi (Focus Student)

Colourful Self Portraits

IMG_3915 IMG_3917

We are doing self-portraits of our self we traced our hands and our feet. We did lots of detail on our hair and our fingers (I put fingernails on mine – Josie). We drew clothes on our portraits. (I used brown for the hair – Aleara).

We liked Sylvan’s portrait, because he put lots of colours on his shoes and even drew mud on them. Stella drew a colourful twisty dress on her self-portrait and Lucas drew lots of buttons on his shirt in his portrait.

 We really liked taking our shoes off to trace around our feet and hands. We’ve had fun making our self-portraits. J

1/2s Reflections so far – Funky Self Portraits

I liked when we made our portraits, drawing around our feet and hands. I helped Arlie too. Alby

I’m a trolley person. My job is to make sure the trolley is tidy and everything is put away properly at the end of the art lesson. I like my job. Ellie

I liked that we got to do something about ourselves in Art. Jed

I think the session went really well because we all got to trace around our hands and feet and some people got to draw their faces. Connor R

We traced our hands and feet (it was hard) and drew a head and face to make a self portrait. Tyson

I found the hardest thing today was tracing around my hands and feet, because you couldn’t really see what you were doing and it was hard to trace around the hand that you don’t write with. Bella

I found it challenging to keep the shape of the head right and I accidentally made my lips a bit too big, but it still looked good after I did the rest of the face properly. Jessi

We learnt a little bit about Leonardo Da Vinci and portraits. He painted the Mona Lisa and lived in France but was born in Italy. He was born over 500 years ago. Krystos, Scarlett

I liked how we made our hands and feet by tracing around them and then drew our face. Jacobi

We drew a self portrait. I liked how we got to draw our faces and our eyes and ears. Toby

I’m pretty happy with my art work because I did really good work and I worked well all lesson. Jude.

I liked how I drew my hair today. Aleara

I like my work because it had lots of detail on it. I liked how I drew my teeth. Ethan.
