The grade 5’s have been learning about the famous and wonderful artist Quentin Blake. I took my note ideas and a frame from his site http://www.quentinblake.com.
We are now creating a picture in the style of Quentin Blake.
The watercolour paints worry the children as they are not used to using so much water or making the colours so light. Even when I show and explain how we will be doing a second layer of paint and that will have richer places of colour. Still they struggle to use the colours lightly.
It is a work in progress.
