Year R were practising their observational drawing and painting skills today. Working in small groups, the children painted slices of watermelon. They carefully looked at the melon before sketching its shape with pencil. They were introduced to primary colours and mixed their own secondary and tertiary colours before carefully applying the paint. Pupils used a small brush (for the fiddly bits) and a large brush (for painting and flicking paint).
All Year R pupils will be given the opportunity to draw from observation throughout term 5. Please have a look at the gallery below.
