Along with making our own sketches, we are looking at sketches made by famous artists, noting how they try out ideas, draw objects from various perspectives, and practice their drawing techniques.
Many artists are also collectors. The objects they collect often inspire their art. We watch the first part of a video of Elizabeth Blackadder, in which she talks about things that inspire her and some of the objects from around the world that she has in her studio. Thursday, the children brought in an object from home they were interested in sketching.
