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.
Water colour washes with oil pastels
The children also experimented with different watercolour effects with beautiful results.
A lovely half terms work!
