Portraiture is another aspect to drawing. John Colet School students begin by learning the proportions of the face and the expressive use of line in describing features and expression. They love scribble drawing, which is a fast way to draw the various shapes the body makes whilst the children take turns to pose for a few minutes at a time. This observation introduces the concepts of foreshortening, shape, proportion, movement elongation, miniatures and so on. It also brings in different ways of drawing, drawing large shapes by drawing from the shoulder with the elbow straight, to quick sketches and moving into abstract shapes, just colour and form, as in the work of Victor Brauner “Alphabet de la te^te” for example.
