Year 2 have been enjoying our Art Enrichment days this week.

Over the last two days, the children have been introduced to some old and new drawing vocabulary, sketching techniques and illustrators.

We started by making our own personalised sketch books to collect our artwork in. We learnt some new mark-making techniques, including cross-hatching and stippling (dots). We were fortunate to have two artists visit us, demonstrating their calligraphy and sketching skills.

Our classes looked closely at the illustrations in several of Anthony Browne’s books and recreated these in their sketch books.

We really enjoyed showcasing our sketching during Open Classrooms this morning, thanks to all the parents who came in to share our learning.
