The Big Draw

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.

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!

In Y4 we practised our sketching skills by copying a picture of a giraffe!

In Y4 we have been investigating the use of oil pastels to colour animal sketches.

In year 3, we used our new sketch books to draw the Eiffel Tower.

We used rubbers to create negative shapes and patterns against different degrees of shaded backgrounds

In Y4 we used oil pastels to draw self portraits

We explored colour and pattern using chalk and oil pastels to create eye-catching designs

In Elder we investigated using different grades of pencils and graphite sticks to explore shade. We then used these skills to create a detailed picture of St Peters Church.

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......

In Year 6, we developed our drawing skills by using pencil to develop our skills in drawing shapes and lines. We looked at our eyes, nose and mouth before drawing our self portraits. We used pastel to add colour to our portraits. To develop our skills further we used technology to create self portraits using a digital programme. Our portraits are now digital from simply using a drawing tool. Wow, Year 6!

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.
