Crushed Food

This week we started the new theme of Food and Comics…….(a way to get the children drawing Still Life of beautiful fruit and veg) we created a still life and practiced drawing it in our books in frames that encouraged the children to repeat the drawings but still keeping it interesting….by changing the frame. Then as always the children thought of something new and crushed the food, cherries and then drew them again. Brilliant, the drawings already looked like a comic with the cherry being crushed…aaaaahhh! We then drew with chalk, rubbing out and repeating the drawing again on boards. Boards are great, you can use them again, rub things out and the kids get a chance to escape from paper which they use so much at school. Next week we will develop the pastel drawing and learn about were the original word Cartoon comes from….
