Grade 2 were working hard to improve their drawing skills in March. They decided that one thing they all like to draw is animals, but some animals are so hard to get right. We looked at how some children’s book illustrators drew animals and we decided that animal drawings don’t have to be perfect to look good they just have to be the right shapes.
By looking carefully at the animals we wanted to get better at we could break them down into composite shapes. This made them much easier to draw. All grade 2 agreed they had got better at drawing animals and would now always concentrate on shapes when trying to draw difficult objects in the future rather than trying to draw the whole thing in one go!
We had so many great animals we created a few habitats….
