To compliment our science topic ‘Living things and their habitats’, we produced some Mini-beast inspired art. We were lucky enough to be visited by Jenny Ulyatt, a professional water-colour artist. We looked at different photographs of insects and practised some observational drawing looking at shapes and patterns. Next, we practised mixing watercolours on a piece of parchment paper and used leaves to add texture to our paintings. After some practise, we felt ready to decorate our mini-beasts and produced some eye-catching, detailed paintings that will proudly hang in our classroom.
