Self-portrait of Me Copied 3 Times by Georgina
It was a sunny day and Georgina was wearing her stripey sun hat! She drew this picture at home when her Supported-Learning art class moved online in 2020. These classes provided her with much-needed structure during her weeks in lockdown. Georgina says, “I really enjoyed doing my self-portrait faces, which I did after looking at some portraits by Picasso. I enjoy talking to my class friends and tutor online every Wednesday and I enjoy using colour. I like doing art in lockdown because I like to keep myself busy when there is not so much to do during lockdown. I enjoy doing art as it makes me feel happy and it helps me with my anxiety.”
