Anglo-Saxon Portraits

The Anglo-Saxons were excellent painters and painted famous portraits of their kings and queens. This week, we are going to have a go at drawing and painting our own portraits to make ourselves kings and queens! In order to do this, you will need to work through the steps to make sure you have a well-proportioned head! Then, you can add some more detail to the face (maybe even a crown!). Finally, decorate and paint!

Use the resources below (and the pictures of Alfred the Great!) to help you plan, create and paint your own royal portrait!
