Various work, during after school clubs
Monochrome using blue
Year four looked at some of the school plants and made observational drawings using soft pencil and then painted them using blue water colour. I explained to them that it was like a black and white photograph where shape and colour is expressed using tone.
The children enjoyed working outside on a pleasant sunny day to draw leaves, flowers and grasses.
During the winter the outside classroom was a good place to look the horizon, hills and trees surrounding the school and have a go at drawing them before going back into the classroom to paint pictures from the sketches they had made.
Observational drawings and paintings.
Pastel drawing of the children's toys done in a gifted and talented after school club. work in charcoal by year six.
This is the art/science room at Ghyll Royd School Burley in Wharfedale where I set out a still life subject of flowers for the children to draw and paint. All of the children worked really hard and painted some excellent paintings. They used water colour and mixed some beautiful colours.
Ink Splot Project
All children love an ink splot workshop. Here are some examples of the fun they have had!
The Golden Fish
These paintings were done using wax resist and powdered ink and were based on a famous painting by Paul Klee. The children enjoyed looking at this picture and thinking about what it represented and how it was done.
