Some Birds M12

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!
