Class 8CM have stated a timely new art topic looking at the subject of winter. We started off our learning by looking at some images of winter trees. The students were asked to identify what was missing. We were able to see that the trees had no leaves.
The pupils also looked at the colours. We could see that winter means that the trees often appear very dark.
These pictures were then used for our own artistic inspiration. The pupils placed some tracing paper over the original designs. We could see the outline of the trees when these were placed against the window.
Pastels were used to create the outline of the trees. These were then cut out to show a striking image of the trees during winter.
