In this lesson, we will think about what it means to be 'good' at drawing. We will experiment with mark making in our sketch book and use a variety of media; pencils, crayons, pastels, felt tips and chalk to begin to explore the different outcomes these tools create.
Unit Overview: Drawing
For next step we recommend the unit: Painting.
In this lesson, we will be thinking all about how colours can make us feel. We will begin to learn about the properties of colour and how to select colours for our art to express an emotion. At the end of the lesson we will be drawing a self-portrait in our sketch books using the colours that express how we are feeling today.
In this lesson, we will be hunting for shadows and exploring the different ways we can use shadows to inspire our drawings. Later on in the lesson, we will begin to discuss 'tone' and experiment with a range of drawing materials to understand a bit more about this term.
In this lesson, we will be exploring the ways artists use tonal value to bring their drawings to life. Later on in the lesson, we will create our own tonal value drawing using charcoal and chalk.
Taking on the role of detectives, we will be developing our observational skills; looking closely at objects in photographs and in real life to support us with this. To summarise our learning, we will be going outside to complete an observational drawing.
