It has become a tradition at Durban Girls' College that my Grade 10 students do charcoal portraits every year. I tried to break pattern & asked the Grade 10 students to explore trees in charcoal, but they begged me to allow them to do portraits. Once again this project has been a success. The following artworks are by Katie, Linette, Olivia, Palesa and Taryn respectively. Click here if you want more detail on this lesson or to view artwork from a previous class.
