The classroom had photographs of old schooners pinned up. The children sketched their chosen schooner, including detail and tones.
They drew the schooner again on an A3 piece of paper. I asked them to try to make the drawing touch 3 sides of the page. It was an attempt to get them to draw large boats. They did well.
They drew 2 lines through their drawing, dividing the page into 4 parts.
Each part was dealt with using a different medium.
Black ink and sticks, water colour paint, coloured pencil and charcoal.
I'm going to try this lesson tomorrow with a younger group of children.
