How do artists use pencils?

For our art topic this term, we started by looking at the ways in which artists use pencils to create realistic drawings.  Mark making is the foundation to this and the children learn about all the different ways pencils can be use to mark, shade, blend and sketch.  We look at how sketches are made realistic and then we try some of our own; feathers, branches, rocks and onions!

Here we are this week starting to sketch and mark make with pencils.
