Observational Drawings

In Topic this term, we are learning all about our local area: South Oxhey. In this week’s lesson, we learned all about the history of Greenfields, including the story of how and why it became a Grade-II listed building in the 1990s.

To celebrate the architecture of our school, we created our own observational drawings. We practiced how to vary our tones and how to create texture through a variety of hatching types. Then, we set off  to draw the Upper KS2 classrooms and the biodome. We had great fun doing this, and had the extra challenge of  stopping our sketchbooks from blowing away in the wind!
