Year 2 enjoyed a visit from a real artist called Zoe Allen who works closely with the Baltic. We used watercolour paint to create some artwork inspired by South American animals.
We chose appropriate colours and different techniques such as using straws to blow paint and washing to make a rainforest background. Then we sketched a toucan and used watercolour paint and thin brushes to paint it using bright colours. We then glued the foreground to our background to complete our artwork.
We have some brilliant artists in Year 2!
