Clay Sketching in Year 1!

This week, Year 1 have been using clay to sketch each other. To make this more challenging, and exciting, we asked our parent to make a pose for us to make using the clay. We had such a lovely time sketching our friends and have learned how to manipulate clay in a variety of different ways.

Sunflowers

Over the past few weeks we have been enjoying looking at sunflowers in our art lessons. We started by sketching a sunflower thinking about using a back and forth technique. Then we painted a sunflower and looked at mixing the different colours to make the shade or colour we needed. Finally, we added other media to our sunflowers to create more detail and add texture.
