Figure Drawing in Year 6

We used charcoal and chalk to explore proportions in figure drawing. We used observational skills to understand how the size of a head helps to determine the size of torsos and in turn length of legs. We noticed that arms and hands reach down to the thigh which helped us determine the length of arms.

The next challenge was to use this knowledge to draw a believable character from 'The Wizard of Oz'. We added a little colour with chalk pastels.
