Linear Landscapes

Prep School
14 Oct 22

Our Year 5 pupils have been experimenting with using line and different mark-making techniques to create linear landscapes. To embrace The Big Draw Festival’s theme ‘Back to Colour’, they have enriched their wonderful landscapes with splashes of vibrant watercolour. Their landscapes conjure up imaginary worlds filled with movement, energy and pattern. Basic lines: vertical, horizontal, diagonal, curved and zig zag were creatively composed to conjure up faraway, magical places. The children are continuously building on their drawing skills, and their next line of action in Art is enhancing three dimensional form by capturing the cleverness of contour lines.
