Experimenting with different drawing techniques - drawing with a continuous line, only looking at the object, not taking your hand off the page...leading up to a longer observational drawing.
Gorgeous idea to shade with pen first.
We used pencil and watercolours to hone our observational drawing skills - thinking about colour as well as form.
What began as copying step by step cartoons turned into a riot of imaginative animals!
Drawing with charcoal and also with rubbers, we focused on the use of tone to give shape and form (as well as getting pretty messy!).
Based on the Surrealists' invention of collectively assembling words and images in a game, we created never-seen-before animals and creatures - much to our amusement!
Through making our own colour wheels, we learnt about primary, secondary and complimentary colours.
We had a lot of fun this week experimenting with the effects of adding water to pen drawings.
We practised the technique of drawing what is around an object to then create the object on paper
Inspired by the legendary Matisse cut outs, we really loved creating art work by cutting and sticking shapes and their negative space.
Beginning with 5 dots, we used our imaginations and Kadinsky's work and created line drawings.
We had a satisfying drawing session seeing how coloured pastels can sink into or jump out from a black background.
A collaborative piece from Year 6s, led by parents to depict St Michael and the Dragon.
