Art – Draw Small

February

As part of our learning in Art, before our final collage piece, Year 6 pupils have been learning how to draw small and really pay attention to the details. We began by making sketches on the page, amongst the objects themselves. We made tiny movements with our fingers and hands – drawing from the wrist, but also being most comfortable. The exercise was intended to help us focus, relax, and begin to coordinate hand and eye. As we drew, we became more aware of the relationship between looking and drawing and let our eyes flit between looking at the object and looking at our sketch.
