Big Draw Autumn 2019

Leonardo Da Vinci

This year we took part in the 'Big Draw' which is the world biggest drawing festival.


In Class 2, we based our big draw day around the work of Leonardo Da Vinci.


We learned all about him and how he was not only an incredible, famous artist but also and inventor and great thinker.


We decided to create self portraits inspired by his work.


First, we took portrait photographs and printed them off in black and white.


Next, we traced around the outlines.


After that, we practised some shading techniques such as; hatching, cross-hatching, stumping and stippling.

Transferring and shading

Finally, we transferred our images onto water-colour paper and shaded them in.

Here are some more pictures:
