ISA is delighted to support The Prince’s Foundation for Children & the Arts’ Face Britain project, the UK’s largest ever arts project.
Children across the country are being asked to create a self portrait, as part of celebrations in the lead up to the London Olympics and HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
The portraits, which can be created in any medium, will be combined to create a montage image of HM The Queen, and projected onto Buckingham Palace in April. Organisers hope to break the Guinness World Record for ‘most artists working on the same art installation’.
This exciting initiative is open to all children and young people aged 4-16 years, regardless of circumstance, drawing or learning ability.
Self portraits can be uploaded onto the Face Britain website until the end of March 2012.
The online gallery, brought to life by PhotoBox, already hosts over 10,000 portraits, providing a vibrant snapshot of the 2012 generation. The number of portraits is rising every day!
Face Britain is supported by a number of high profile patrons, including photographer Rankin, artist Tracey Emin, author Michael Morpugo and illustrator Quentin Blake.
