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!
For your art lesson this morning you will need a pencil and some paper.

What do you think they were they made of?
Stone age jewellery included beads on necklaces and bracelets, pendants and hair pins. They made these beads from shells, animal teeth, animal bones or stones. They would then thread these beads onto string often made from plant stems or thin strips of animal hide.
Choose two pieces of jewellery from the pictures above to draw on your piece of paper.
Design your own piece of jewellery that we will be making next week.
Today we will continue to work on our Picasso portraits we started last week. Last week, we stuck together the head, neck and shoulders and today we will be adding the facial features and other details.
Last week your work should have looked something like this.
Today we will be adding detail. Use different colours of paper to add eyes, a mouth, hair, and other details.
Finally, outlining and add more details with a black marker.
