Research included looking at the caricatures of Daumier, Hogarth, Scarfe and the
creators of Spitting Image, Fluck and Law.
Pupils worked with a variety of media including chalk, clay, computers, pen and ink. A
variety of techniques are incorporated in these drawings.
Large chalk drawings focussed on the use of tone to create the
illusion of depth. Pupils made numerous sketches of faces and bodies which were developed
into large (A2) drawings.
Clay heads and figures were made and placed on relevant photos
from magazines. These displays were themselves photographed using the digital camera. The
resulting images were manipulated in the computer to create magazine covers in the style
of Fluck and Law.
Some of these caricatures are self portraits. Pupils take digital photographs of
themselves. The image is transferred to the computer and loaded into an application called
Rephorm where the face is distorted. The results are used as a
basis for self portraits.
