As part of Green and Healthy Week, Year 3 students were invited up to the Secondary Art Department to take part in a lesson on how to draw fruit. Thirty five extremely excited students arrived at the Secondary School Art classrooms, eager to develop their drawing skills.
The Secondary Art Department staff were deeply impressed with these young artists’ concentration on the task; all the students drew simple forms and added shade and tone to create some excellent sketches, which began to demonstrate 3D qualities.
Art students generally do two important things, which others often do not do: they look at things more closely than most people do, and find great beauty in everyday objects and situations. These qualities were definitely demonstrated by the Year 3 artists and I hope they enjoyed the session as much as we enjoyed having them!
