Good Morning Year 6!
We discussed that no matter how fancy schmancy the school is, what is the most important thing is the people that you meet there. As long as you have good friends and teachers that you trust, you will have a great time.
This week, Group 2 asked if we could do some still life drawing in class so I thought you might like to do some at home too! A still life is simply a painting or drawing of an object or group of objects that cannot move and are close to you.
Contemporary artists like to use more contemporary objects to make their still life drawings more interesting:
Now it's time to have a go!!
1. Collect some objects that remind you of your time at Virginia Primary. You might use your book bag, your school shoes, your uniform jumper, some stationary or anything else that reminds you of your time at Virginia Primary.
2. Sketch the outline of the shapes. Use light pencil strokes so that you can move the lines if you need to.
3. Shade in the shadows and textures. If you have charcoal or pastels at home you might want to use them.
4. Add the highlights at the end using a rubber. Highlights are where you can see the light shining or reflecting on your objects. They help to make the object look 3D.
Here is a video of an artist doing a still life drawing of a shoe, incase you would like some tips.
Let's test our spatial reasoning skills!
This is a test psychologists use to test people's spatial awareness. Have a go! I'll post the answers tomorrow.
Here is a link to the whole test if you would like to have a go!
Well... that's another day done!
We are sending all our love to everyone at home and you are missed by your teachers and friends.
