Exploring lines, tone and texture
This half term in art we have been learning about self and royal portraits. The children have observed lines and shapes they can see on photographs of themselves and paintings of Henry VIII by the artist Hans Holbein. We have learnt about 2B, 4B and 6B pencils and how they can effect our sketches. Today we explored different lines to create light and dark tones and will apply these to our drawings of Henry VIII tomorrow. Keep posted for photographs of our final portraits and art display.
As artists we have:
Developed and recorded ideas through drawing in response to first hand observations, e.g. photographs.
Talked about and answer questions about the starting point, and choices we have made.
Recognised the styles of artists and use this to inform their own work (Hans Holbein).
Confidently used drawing to explore the use of line, texture, colour, shape to create different effects, e.g. cross hatching.
Described how we have changed and adapted our work for a specific purpose, e.g. use of specific tools to create more texture such as which pencil to use for a certain effect.
