Year 2: Illustration, part 2
This was our third lesson on illustration and the children were very excited to begin painting their artwork. We began by discussing how to mix different shades, how to increase the saturation of your colour and how to prepare a wash for larger areas.
The children had adapted the original story, Up and Down by Oliver Jeffers, and chosen a new animal who might want to learn to fly. Their artwork features flying squirrels, tigers, ducks, fish and several other creatures.
The children made books incorporating the stories that they had written in their English lessons and these illustrations and were very proud of their work.
