Last week the children in Year 2 visited the Shipley Art Gallery. Their topic this half term has been portraits. At the gallery, the children enjoyed drawing with their non dominant hand, as well as making an abstract portrait out of felt. They listened very well to Fearne whilst she was giving instructions and were determined during their independent activities. It has hard work making felt portraits as the felt had to be flattened and rubbed with soapy water for at least 20 minutes – their hands were the cleanest they had ever been for lunch!
