Lowry visitor in Cedar class
Today we had a visit from an artist to teach us all about L S Lowry.
In preparation we looked at the matchstick figures that Lowry used to draw and we created these poses in PE and took photographs of each other. We then edited these into black and white as Lowry only used the colours - black, white, red, yellow and blue. We then used these photographs to draw our own matchstick figures to create a collage of Cedar class coming into school.
We then used oil pastels to draw our own seascape.
In the afternoon we used different techniques taught to us by the artist to draw terraced houses and the factories and we used watercolours to paint it.
