The Big Draw

Year 2 - Using 2b & 6b pencils and our observational drawing skills to create whole class pieces of art!

LESSON 1 - HENRY MOORE'S SKETCHBOOKS inspired Hawthorn class to fill a page with drawings of Henry's monumental sculptures. We used biro, 2b, 6b - just like the artist.

Ash Class have been drawing AUTUMN TREES and smudging with charcoal and chalk. Then they printed trees from Savoy cabbages and printed hedgehogs with sponges and the edges of lolly sticks.

In Elm class, we are drawing still life pictures of flowers. We have learned that we can only draw what we can see, we have learned to "tickle" the paper and to use smudging to make our pictures look more 3D. 

In Elder, we worked as a team to explore the work of Quentin Blake.  We learned about his imperfect, rugged lines and his creative characters.  After practicing in our sketch books, we enjoyed group drawing then celebrated each other’s work by perusing our gallery leaving feedback for our friends.  We then used watercolours to add to our drawings, focusing on using different shades of colours by mixing our palette.  


We looked at some Impressionist painters and their Still Life drawings of fruit and vegetables. 

Here are our observational chalk pastel drawings with chalk and charocal. Pictured are ongoing work and then final pieces. We were drawing for a sustained period of time - an hour.

Elder Class Year 4 - We love using chalk pastels to blend tints and shades of colours

THE BIG DRAW in Hawthorn Class

In Guided Reading sessions our book, 'Mary Anning - the Girl Who Cracked Open the World', has inspired us to create a group drawing based on Fossils. Like Mary, we have made lots of drawings from some real fossils or photographs. Rick was inspired to try Mary's Ichthyosaur. We used 6B, 2B, biro, graphite sticks and lots of charcoal and white chalk. 

Elmer the elephant in EYFS

In Year 3 we used a large roll of paper and a 6B pencil to draw our own cave paintings based around the book ‘The First Drawing’. We then added a splash of colour using chalks.

In Year 5, we had a fun afternoon developing our drawing and sketching skills of flowers.  Instead of working in our sketchbooks, we worked as a group on a long roll of paper which stretched across our table.  It was quite tricky to draw the flowers from still life!
