During Art this term the Year Six students focused on improving and developing their drawing skills. They have learnt the importance of carefully observing what they are drawing and the need to break the object down into familiar shapes. After drawing shells and faces, their latest drawing wast to draw a realistic still life portrait of a teddy bear. After this sketching process, the next step will be to add texture, highlights and shadows, using only a lead pencil and erasure.
Stay tuned for final pieces!
