Shades of History

Wow! What a creative Friday afternoon we’ve had in Year 3! We explored various ways to shade, gradually creating gradients and exploring how to use our pencils accurately before we sketched each other. We practiced using our new shading techniques, while inspired by sketches of Fanny Eaton, a Jamaican-born model from the 1840s.

Team Year 3 were very impressed with our talented classes – We’re looking forward to even more exciting Art projects in future!

We had a go at creating our own and the end results are amazing!
