Art

 

Keyhole Pictures:

Draw a keyhole, inside draw what you might see if you looked through it. Use your imagination. It can be somewhere magical, beautiful, scary etc

Observational Drawing:

 

Collect a seclection of plants, twigs, leaves and any other natural objects from outside, then arrange them on a table. Have a look at these natural objects carefully. What shape is it? How does it feel? What colour is it? What is the texture like? Think about where you can see the light or shadows on these objects. Don't forget to use the skills that you have learnt in other topics: Textures, shading and shape.

Andy Goldsworthy is an artist who makes sculptures from natural materials like rock, sticks and leaves.

Can you be an artist like Goldsworthy and create a piece of artwork using natural materials?
