Art Printing and Observational Drawings

Posted: 18th January 2024

Our Year 1 and 2 pupils at Pre-Prep have been making these fabulous observational drawings of flowers over the handprint backgrounds they created last week. To begin with, they learnt about what a ‘print’ is and enjoyed getting messy by printing using their hands and other objects. Next, they carefully sketched flowers from photographs, paying close attention to the shapes and details of each individual flower. Then they traced over their pencil lines with black pen to make them really stand out from the colourful background. It was great to think about the stages of creating a piece over time and adding layers to their work.

Please note that there is a widespread technical issue with CrowdStrike’s software which has led to a global outage affecting various sectors, including planes, railways, and iSAMS servers and communications. This may mean that parents of the school might not be able to use their parent portal currently and some other parts of our site might not work as well as they normally do.

We urge you to take a well-earned break and check back in on Monday when hopefully things will be working again.
