As part of their work on the human figure Year One children have been experimenting with wire to make figures. See earlier post
Sabrina Smith Noble showed them how to create a small figure out of wire and cover it with foil.
They set them up behind a screen, lit from behind so they could watch the shadows they created.
They had fun moving them around to create different scenario’s
Children then drew the figures – it helped them with ideas of proportion, shape and form.
We then added a water-colour backdrop to our drawings.
I look forward to seeing the finished pictures that were created.
