Year 4 got an art lesson on Tuesday. It covered:
Equipment, looking while drawing, scale and perspective, shading, colour temperatures, imagination and why bicycles are hard to draw.
This consisted of the kids telling me what to draw, making the drawings into a story and changing the style of work to illustrate different points.
Later I made a quick sketch to show how to draw a face (which was given away to the sitter). Afterwards the children drew each other with a really pleasant level of success.
They listened! It worked! Fascinating to see the different styles and attitudes.
Trevor the ‘art teacher’. Teehee. Now to do the same class with the schools 5 year olds…
