After school art: large loose flower drawings

It was our first art club after half term with quite a few new faces. I decided to start with some drawing to loosen up and took in some spectacular frilled tulips from the market.

We started with some blind contour drawing to slowly look at the shapes of the flowers then tried some looser drawing with charcoal. As the main activity each child worked on a piece of paper as long as themselves and created huge oil pastel drawings of their flowers. This involved quite a lot of logistical planning for them as they had to work out how to draw right to the top of the paper.

I was impressed how the children returned to their drawings to add extra colour details in the flower heads noting where the colours changed and blended.
