Week 4

Self Portrait Competition

We have an exciting competition for you with a mystery prize. Can you create a self portrait? That means a picture of yourself. You can draw it (paper or computer) , paint it or create it in any other ways that you want. We are looking for likeness and creativity as well showing the WHA values. Remember to have the courage and positivity to submit your entry even if it didn't turn out exactly how you imagined it in your head. Looking in the mirror at yourself is a great place to start. Have fun!

Deadline: 4pm Friday 1st May 2020
