I have just had the pleasure of working with the fabulous children in year 1 at Woodlesford Primary School in Leeds. These children took part in one of my ‘Portrait Illustration Workshops’ and stunned me with their energy and creative talents.
Look at this wonderful sample of work below. These children are 5 and 6 year olds. They did such a great job and added their own individual bits of flare to their work. We explored line work, talked about the face structure and features, had a think about where light was coming from, discussed adding different ink to their work and then finally looked at shade and texture to finish off.
I enjoyed working at this school enormously. The staff where so friendly, accommodating and helpful, I felt like I had been part of the team for years. It makes such a difference to me.
The children were brilliant and one of them said that it was… “the best day in school yet”.
I’ll take that! (“,)
Look at these wonderful images.
