Carrie's lesson 7-8 yr olds
Just a short artday as the class had swimming today. I started by reading 'Some Birds' by Matt Spink, which has bold, colourful illustrations of fantasy birds. I had used a few of these birds to create an outline for the class to use as a starting point. Their mission was to create a new bird using patterns, bright colours and tonal variations. Many didn't have enough time to complete backgrounds, but they seemed very pleased with what they did achieve.
|As usual, we started the day with observational drawing. I was very impressed with their attention to detail and shape, in particular, the blades overlapping. Ka Pai M12!|
