Lesson 2

Art & Design

We are going to look closely at some drawings of insects and have a go at sketching some of our own. You will need to sketch (soft, light strokes) not draw (solid lines). No are rubbers allowed for this lesson. Make your lines darker if they are where you want them to be, Ignore lighter strokes. You need to create your outline first. Make it as big as your page. Once you have created your outline of the insect, you will try to add tone (use your pencil to add lighter/darker shades). Finally, you will add texture (the feel/look of the insect using dots, dashes or cross hatching).

You will not be using any colour on these sketches. You only need a pencil. We hope you enjoy it!
