With a nod to our unit of inquiry on life cycles we had a go at drawing and then painting patterned chickens in yesterday’s art lesson.
Following a last-minute dash round the school collecting black indelible markers, we were ready to start.
We began by drawing the outline of the bird; a round shape for the head (with its beak, comb and eye!)
and a curvy half-moon body. Oh, and a feathery tail and a couple (that’s just two!) of spindly legs.
Next, the body was filled with a pattern of either circles or triangles (or even a combination of the two).
for the next step. Which involves watercolour paints.
Beaks and combs…..
and pretty tummies…..
get the treatment. Until it’s all “Chick, chick, chick, chick…..
Lay a little egg for me!”
(PS These particularly fine eggs were laid by Betty and Dave)
