The pupils of 5th and 6th class have been exploring many different drawing and painting materials.
We compared chalk and crayons and used each on different types of paper. Chalk works best on black or dark coloured paper, while crayon looks much beter on white paper. We found that chalk is great for smudging and blurring. On the other hand, crayons can be used to make strong, well-defined lines as well as soft subtle lines.We used chalk and crayons to illustrate the poem ‘The Sea’ by James Reeves.
We used paint to explore rhythm and movement. We loked at paintings of the sea by others artists for inspiration! Swirling and circlular lines helped to bring our seas to life and make them look alive!
