Kids school and holiday art clubs

A watercolored commotion in the ocean

Our Key Stage one class at Pelham after school art club have been sloshing around in the ocean and learning about watercolour painting.

They began by looking at whales and making a simple model of a blue whale using a paper plate.

They continued to observe whales and other sea creatures by looking at pictures, books, stories and toys.

After lots of looking and drawing, Louise Pasquill taught the children lots of new techniques to include in their illustrations

Oil pastel drawings, smudging, scraping and sgraffito.
