Learning together, growing together

Year 3



To improve out drawing skills we have been observing fruit and vegetables. We have been thinking about  line and tone, working on our shading techniques. We used different types of sketching pencils, charcoal and pens to create light and dark.

We used a view finder to zoom in on different fruit and vegetables. The pattern and texture in a pineapple skin was really interesting and we were amazed at the colours we saw inside a red cabbage!

We drew the fruit and vegetables first but then used our drawings to create a press print design. The rollers spread the printing ink evenly on our design. It was really exciting discovering our prints as we took the press print off the printing paper!

We worked in groups to create larger pieces of printmaking. Look out for our final gallery pieces next week!
