Composition, Painting and Drawing Skills
In Year 3, we have been developing our art skills whilst learning lots about rainforest animals, birds and plants. Noah, Luke and Edward showed exceptional skills and concentration when learning the difference between H and B pencils and the effects that different grades of pencils can create. We also learnt about some different ways to compose paintings, including the ‘Rule of Thirds’. These pupils in particular thought carefully when planning their paintings, considering where to place animals as the main subjects of the picture and how the plants could lead the eye towards these subjects. From their planning sketches, they produced beautiful, atmospheric final paintings.
