This lesson calls on us to look at the shapes and lines in the old truck but I was especially drawn to a landscape piece here and asked them to imagine the truck driving through an old bumpy road with lots of fields and greenery all around. This gives us the opportunity to add so much movement, color and texture.
They loved drawing the truck and I took the opportunity to stress that they’re not just ‘learning to draw a truck’ they’re learning how to break a complex thing down into smaller shapes so they can draw ANYTHING.
This is will be completed in another class but take a look at what they’ve done so far.
They added details using oil pastels on both their trucks and landscapes. They learnt how to distress the truck so it looks old and used the oil pastels to create texture and depth to their landscapes as well! A job well done!
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
