To support our learning about light and shade, Lower Key Stage 2 were delighted to welcome an artist into school.

Our visitor, Kate, showed us the shading techniques of still-life artist Paul Cezanne. She demonstrated how to use coloured paper to create the fruits, bottles and other objects. Kate also showed us how, by using a black outline, we can make these other colours look brighter.

Finally, the three classes were taught how to create a shading effect, with black, and how to emphasise the lit parts of each object, with white.

Kate was very complimentary of all our children. She greatly enjoyed working in Windy Nook and we’d all like to thank her for sharing her expertise and giving up her time.
