Drawing birds in charcoal
We were warned it would get messy, and it did! We were excited about drawing in charcoal, as we haven't used it before. Having been shown by our arty TA, Mrs Favell, how to use it, we went on to draw the birds we have been studying.
Then came the test - peer assessment. Could everyone tell which bird was which? Most achieved this, as they had closely observed their bird, focussing on the features that made it different to any other, such as the shape of its beak or the spots and patterns on its feathers.
