Pupils’ World Record Breaking Portraits!

Posted on: June 29th 2012

Recently, Norfolk House took part in the Face Britain project, where the pupils created self portraits which were then combined to create a portrait of the Queen. This was projected onto Buckingham Palace for three nights in April, to coincide with Her Majesty’s Birthday.

When creating their portraits, the pupils studied work by Pablo Picasso (1881 - 1973) and Amedeo Modigliani (1918 - 1984).  Each pupil created their own style of portrait using different selections of media.

See some of their portraits below.

By participating in the Face Britain project, the pupils from Norfolk House have helped to achieve a Guinness World Record title for the most artists working on the same art installation.

The pupils are amongst 201,948 children and teenagers across the nation who are not only part of the UK’s largest art project, but are also officially acknowledged as Guinness World Records record-breakers.

The pupils are very excited to have been part of such a fantastic project:“I feel like a celebrity!” -Sam“I'm so excited that my portrait was part of a Guinness World Record and I may see it in the book one day!” -Annabel“I felt special to be involved in something with the Queen and Buckingham Palace.” -MatthewTo view the record breaking portrait collection visit the online gallery on the Face Britain website www.facebritain.org.uk.
