    Oliver created ‘Self Portrait Print’ at St George’s Special School, Newport, Isle of Wight.

    Oliver is a non-verbal autistic student. He created an artwork that was teacher-led; he would have had difficulty planning this piece himself.

    However, he fully participated in all aspects of creating it.

The main theme was to create a self portrait in silhouette using African Art as inspiration.

This was a print project: silhouette card printed over a potato repeat print, with an African styled collaged neck piece added. Oliver looked at African Textiles and Ndebele neck collars.
