Using their Visual Art diaries they wrote about facts about the artist and then enjoyed drawing Harring inspired images. First the students drew their designs with a Graphite lead pencil, outlined their drawings with either a black Sharpie or black paint. They were encouraged to use vibrant colours. They absolutely enjoyed this project and remained completely focused. Outstanding Art Year 5 students!
