Castles are a favourite for both boys and girls for different reasons of course... but their universal appeal make them a great subject for the art room! Lots of line drawing and discussion of scale goes into setting the stage for this piece of artwork and of course we had to make sure everyone knew the basic parts of the castle as well!
I gave the Picassos lots of ideas for how the doors and windows etc. should look and had them think about what building materials would typically be used so their drawings would come out looking like the real thing.
They were drawn in pencil and sharpies. Since these drawings are so detailed we needed a whole class just for drawing, but they'll get painted in the next class! Here's the work in progress though :)
Thursday Picassos take their turn drawing out our castles!
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 :)
