Something fishy in Jet Class

 

On Thursday 8th February 2018, we were doing an art lesson linked to our STEM week. We drew squid and fish, which penguins eat. In today’s lesson,we started with drawing a fish with a pen on an A4 piece of paper. We did some blind drawing when we had to not look at the paper but at the dead fish. We also did some continuous line drawing where you are not allowed to take the pen off the paper. We used watercolours to add a bit of colour. Did you know squid are a bit pink?

Samid said: “I loved drawing something real,’

Darsh said, ‘I used backwards-forwards drawing to draw accurately,”

Muhammed said, “I found it interesting because we had something real in front of us,”

What’s Under the Ice?

Yesterday, we were using water colors to paint an iceberg in the Antarctic Ocean. Icebergs may look quite small on top, but they’re huge underwater!

We were using different shades of green and blue. There were many sea creatures such as krill, whales, coral and fish. Do you know that a whale is the biggest creature in the Antarctic Ocean?

A few other items we used were black oil pastels and salt. The reason we used salt was to give the water some texture. We made the water go darker and darker as it went deeper.

We also had to put in some penguins on the iceberg and swimming in the water.

We made it in the Infant Hall and it was on a really long piece of paper. The bottom of the ocean looked beautiful because it had colorful coral.
