As part of our Reading Art Unit we have been looking at book illustrations and how characters are portrayed. To help them understand how your face changes when you have different feeling some students practiced their cartoon drawings on whiteboards whilst looking in the mirror and others spent time acting for each other and drawing each other to capture what it looks like when you are angry, sad, shocked etc. We created frames for the students to draw their characters in. Having a frame makes your artwork very special and is an easy thing to do at home to get you and your kids drawing.From their observations, experiences and from looking at each other and themselves, they created some very cool cartoon characters. There characters showed a range of emotions.
Have a look outside the ES office for the display of this work.
