Last week we looked at Ted Harrison's art pieces and created our own versions of them.
First, we used pencil. We went step by step to help them draw their outlines. We made sure to draw simple houses, without lots of details, as their pencil lines had to be traceable with crayon. They had a hard time with being told NOT to add details, as we've spend most of the year talking about ADDING them in!
When they were happy with their art, they traced their lines with a black crayon.
Then they got to paint! We used water colour paint pucks, and it looked great over the black crayon lines!
