The Way Things Go

Continuing from last weeks session at Merton Park Primary school where we started to think about structures and moving machines, we made some drawings of car parts and tools.

DSC_0002 I spent a surprisingly enjoyable half hour rummaging around in a car junk yard and found some fabulous things to draw.


The objects helped us look at texture shape and think about how things go together and make things move.

In a more detailed drawing using graded pencils, we created a layered background with coloured paper to help us think about composition. It made our drawings more varied and interesting
