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.
The Big Draw
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!
In Year 5 we explored drawing eyes and noses. We used different grades of pencils and charcoal to see which we preferred. Our first attempts were from memory, then we looked at photographs and then we also learned some techniques from artists modelling how they drew them. Look at the progress we made from our first attempts......
CAVE ART Year 3/4
Following our first sketches in our sketchbooks, we now worked on a group cave drawing. We incorporated animals, hunts and hands which we've found in cave paintings from 30,000 years ago.
