CLASS 7 YEAR 3
In RE we are understanding the theme of 'Light' in different faiths. We have learnt about Hannakah for the Jewish faith and Advent wreaths and Christingles for Christianity. Therefore, in art, we have developed our drawing skills by studying light and shadow using a still life and candelabra. We used 6b pencils and graphite sticks for the dense darkness and 2b for lighter tones. We discussed the atmosphere in our room and why lights are so important at this time of year.
We looked at artists such as George de la Tour who also loved painting the effect of light and dark.
