Art in the Open Learning Programme

Observational drawing is a great way to start many projects!

A reception classroom ready for observational drawing

Magnifying glasses can encourage children to look closely. This is a nursery classroom.

Here a Year 6 pupil draws a puzzle piece, an old tap, sellotape, a drawing figure and a pencil pot.

Make sure you keep a box of interesting objects to draw. These can come from the staffroom kitchen, the playground, your holidays, charity shops and even the fridge!

Pupils looked at real flowers

Pupils were encouraged to use magnifying glasses to look at the detail in the flowers. These drawings are made by Year 3, Year 4 and Year 6 pupils.
