First Drawings with Pencils

Drawing with coloured pencils begins in classes 3 
and 4. 

In Class Four particularly the children are asked to pay careful attention to form, to look at the proportions of the human figure, to look at how our arms, legs, trunk and head are formed. They are encouraged to ‘grow’ the picture, finding the forms first and adding colour and details as they refine it further.

They have practiced using their pencils to create different lines, planes and gradations of colour, from pale shading to strong lines and forms. 

Topics from our Main Lesson stories, the Norse Myths, Local History lessons, festivals and much more has given us many different subjects to draw throughout the year as you can see from this small selection.
