Year 4 have been looking at lines and mark making using the tree outside our classroom as inspiration.
We have been watching the tree each week and seeing how it changes as Autumn progresses. We started by using masking tape to create the tree. Next, using autumnal colours we dabbed on paint all over the page. When it was dry we carefully lifted the tape, we were amazed at our tree shapes. We used lines and marks to create the bark of the tree.
Today we made good use of the power cut to make further progress with our work. We traced over pictures of British birds, we then went over the lines with black pens thinking about the markings needed. We are really pleased with how our art work is turning out.
