Year 5: Dragons' Eyes

The Year 5s had an extended art lesson this week while the Year 6s were occupied with SATs. We continued to study the use of value and light in art and began by looking closely at the appearance and structure of the eyes of various reptiles before designing a close-up drawing of a dragon's eye.

The students started their project by drawing a simple outline, taking care to make the eye large enough to fill much of the page.

They then added texture and pattern to their design.


The next stage was to consider how to make an effective use of value through careful shading:

Finally, the students evaluated their work so far and added highlights and colour:

Here is some of the finished artwork:
