On Friday, we had an amazing art workshop with Paul. He started the day by giving us a masterclass in drawing 3D people and objects. Then, he taught us how to draw 3D perspectives of buildings, similar to the terraced houses in Lowry's paintings. It was very hard, but the children produced some fantastic pieces.
Finally, we focused on the building shapes in Lowry's paintings and created large scale rubbings of the buildings. These are up on display in our classrooms. Please come and see!
First we drew them on foam.
Then we stuck them to cardboard.
After that, we used acrylic paint and a roller.
It was a real wow when we saw the result!
In today's experiment we wanted to find out the best material for a spoon. We tested a range of spoons, including a chocolate spoon.
We loved being scientist even though our chocolate spoons melted. Perhaps we could use it for ice cream instead?
