Year 6 have been exploring the work of illustrator and designer Jo Waterhouse to create their own characters using drawing and collage techniques. The students worked from their individual school photographs and redesigned their clothing to create out of this world characters!
Art and Nature
Year 6 were introduced to how artists used nature as a source of inspiration for their artwork. The group went on a forest walk to ‘collect’ patterns and textures of Epping Forest. Using just pencil and their “zoom lens eyes” the students were asked to focus on and enlarge the patterns they saw around them.
