chick, chick, chick, chick, chicken

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).

Time, now…..


for the next step.  Which involves watercolour paints.

Beaks and combs…..


and pretty tummies…..
