Hello Year 4!

From speaking to many of you, we have realised that we have a year group of very keen artists. Last week, you may have tried drawing a cartoon version of your class animals.


Sketching Activity

Your activity today we build on your sketching skills to draw more realistic animals by using different techniques. You can draw your own class animal or choose another class animal if you prefer!


You will need:

a plain piece of A4 paper
some drawing pencils (sketching pencils if you have them!)
a sharpener and a rubber.

Don’t worry if your animal doesn’t look exactly like the picture shown. That’s the wonderful thing about Art. Yours will be unique. I’m sure you will surprise yourself how well your drawing turns out.


Remember to keep your art work ready for September! You can send a photo of your work via Purple Mash email too.


There is a quick video on pencil techniques which you may want to watch before you start.
