If you would like to take part… To begin with you will need – 

  • An A3 Art Pad or Paper
  • 2B, 4B and 6B Pencils (a set of grades is always good)
  • A Rubber
  • A Sharpener

Activity 1 – Testing out Pencils, Outline, Edges and Shading

Use the first page of your A3 pad to have a play with your pencils, see what different effects you can create when you press hard or lightly. Practice drawing a shape and shading it in from light to dark. Adults, please check YouTube is not displaying any unsuitable adverts and always monitor your child when they are online.

  • What is the different between your pencils?

This YouTube clip might help give you some ideas – 

Activity 2 – Fun Shapes

Watch the video and see if you can fill a page with lots of these fun shape drawings. Use your hand or a parents hand to draw round, you could shade in each section with your pencils or use coloured pencils. Adults, please check YouTube is not displaying any unsuitable adverts and always monitor your child when they are online.

Activity 3 – Flowers

Watch the video and get inspired! Pick a flower from your garden or buy one from a florist. Look at the flower really carefully, look at the shapes and textures, can you see all of the details? Use one page of your pad to sketch and shade your flower from lots of different angles. Adults, please check YouTube is not displaying any unsuitable adverts and always monitor your child when they are online.

Activity 4 – Insects (bugs)

Watch the video and get inspired! Try the ‘How to draw a Realistic Bee’ lesson below. Then find a photograph of an insect that you like and try to sketch and shade it, if you can sit outside and draw insects from life even better, but be warned most will move quickly. Adults, please check YouTube is not displaying any unsuitable adverts and always monitor your child when they are online.
