Comics and Still Life – First day of Term!

We have started our second term at the Art School! This term project is Comics and Still Life it was inspired by Susan Wilson talking about how she “draws the same object again and again and they are characters in her life”. This made us think that we could combine observational drawing and character together in a way the children would find really exciting! So we started of by drawing models of animals, working on use of the pencil and then using paint as a way of describing the negative space around the page. String was also used so the children didn’t just draw the “cat in there imaginative mind” but had to observe the one in front of them and its relationship to the string that was weaved in and out of the animal model. We then had some fun going mad with ideas on their own comic strips!
