I had a fantastic time at Copmanthorpe Primary School creating these fabulous illustrations with the year 6’s.
I love the diversity across the images that they produced.
The pupils were shown a particular process of drawing starting with a simple shape and then they looked at turning those shapes into weird and wonderful characters using a set of simple techniques. They added further embellishments like shade and texture to finish the process.
We talked about the characters and what they stood for, what their names might be and what sort of things they might carry in their pockets etc, if indeed they had any! Some brilliant ideas developed and interesting discussions ensued.
There are a super array of expressions and some really strong line work. It was a delight watching all these illustrations come together over the course of the day.
Terrific work from all the children who all worked diligently throughout the day.
