Ball-point pen drawing, set as a homework to year 8 (12-13 year old) class. They have rules limiting the time spent on homework, but these girls have spent well over an hour on these pieces.
The homework was set in the context of a ‘Seeds And Pods’ project theme.
I’m impressed with the concentration and patience in these works. I said ‘wow’ when I opened each book and set eyes on them.
At the time of writing, the classes are printing using polystyrene blocks using the reduction method.
You can maybe, sense the satisfaction I feel teaching apt this year. It’s been a few years since Art made up such a chunk of my timetable.
