Task 1:

wc 1st February

Warm up

Task 2 wc 8th February

Warm up

Choose another of the warm up drawing activities from the folder to complete.

Copy your favourite

Look at all of the window paintings in the folder and choose your favourite. Then copy this as carefully as you can using any materials you have.

Task 3 wc 15th February (half term)

Choose another of the warm up drawing activities from the folder to complete.

Plan your version

Have a look out of the windows in your house. Choose your favourite one and begin to plan out a picture. How much can you include? Don’t worry if you have to just select a part of the view. Don’t worry if it is near or far or a very familiar object. You are the artist. Decide what you will put in. This is your choice so it can’t be wrong. You might decide to do a view from a real window, a dream window or from a window that you remember.
