Afternoon Curriculum

L.O - I can use oil pastels and a wash technique effectively.


Introduce oil pastel and the water colour wash technique.

Children to practise drawing landscape lines and patterns in sketch books with oil pastels. Look at pictures from Karla Gerard on the presentation for landscape lines. Teacher to model on paper.  


Next, explore the water colour wash technique. Watch

Skip through the video to show the parts where the artist is actually showing water was skills. Do this on paper not in books. Again draw landscape lines and patterns then use the water wash technique.  Stress the importance of long broad brush strokes across the page (avoid scrubbing with the brush, this will create a hole in the paper!). Take a picture and stick in books.  Home Learners can use whatever material available.
