We started our art lessons this term with some work on creating tone. In our sketch books we experimented with different ways of creating tone using sketching pencils. Then, we produced some line drawings of a still life - helmets from WW2. Next week, we will develop these with tone.

After practicing drawing the helmets, we then used torches to create shadows, to allow us to add tone!

We have been learning about the propaganda posters of WW2 and the campaigns attached to them.Then, we used them for the inspiration for our art lessons: we began by copying some of them using pencils to create line drawings. Then, we challenged ourselves to use water colours to do the same, without drawing them with pencil first! The results were pretty impressive 🙂

In term 1, photography is our focus for our Art lessons. This week, we learnt how to take a successful photograph. We had to think about 5 top tips: Get in close, fill the frame, find a focal point, create an interesting composition and ensure the image is in focus.

We then took to the playground to take some photos that followed these rules.
