Recently, Face Britain closed for entries after schools up and down the country submitted thousands of self-portraits by kids aged 4-16 hoping to make British history. Now all these great portraits will be put together, ready for the world to see as each individual portrait will be made into a mosaic of HM The Queen and projected onto Buckingham Palace. In the words of Greg Wallace from Masterchef, it doesn’t get bigger than this!
PhotoBox has brought this huge project to life to help encourage youngsters to use art for positive effects in education and to just plain have fun. Over the coming weeks, events, exhibitions and even a Guinness World Record attempt will be kicking off to celebrate everyone’s hard work for HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Head over to the Face Britain website and have a sneak peek at all of the awesome entries before the big event at Buckingham Palace which will be held for three whole days on the 19th, 20th and 21st of April. So if your child has entered a portrait, hunt it down and be sure to look out for it at one of the events near you. You can also get your hands on some funky Face Britain merchandise with your child’s self-portrait so you’ll never forget their moment of fame!
