Observational drawing from one of my Year 2 (6-7 Years) young artists
The time has come,’ the Walrus said,
To talk of many things:
Of shoes — and ships — and sealing-wax —
Of cabbages — and kings —
The words from this Lewis Carroll poem came into my head when I looked at the drawings of my Year 2 classes. How the most common place objects can be transformed into something magical. The children had to chose between a shell or a key and enlarge it to fill their A4 paper. After a quick five minute sketch on newsprint we came together to observe in more detail the shapes of their chosen objects and tips about how to create form, beyond that it is very much their own work. I hope you will agree that they are really rather special.
