Year 6 are artists

This week, during our art sessions, the children have been learning about developing tone & texture in their work. At the beginning of the week, they learnt how different sketching pencils produce different tones and they also learnt techniques such as hatching, contour hatching, stippling and blending which would  build tone in their sketches.

As the week progressed, they learnt step-by-step how to draw realistic eyes, noses, eyebrows and lips before producing their own portraits using their new skills.

We can’t wait to see how their World War II leader portraits turn out next week!
