Wildlife artist, John Tyson, visited The Granville School on 7th October 2016. He taught various skills to all the girls.
Reception learnt that there are different ways to hold a pencil when you are drawing.
Class 1& 2: Sketched a Barn Owl
They created a sense of movement in flight, with long wings and flowing feathers, while detail was minimal.
Some of Class 3 & 4 got a little wet when their work was held vertically and sprayed with water. Bars of colour ran down the page and blended together to create a lovely background.
Class 5 and 6 used charcoal and watercolour paints to create hedgehogs and foxes; finishing their work with spattering to make the paintings even more vibrant.
The girls work will be on display in the Entrance Hall, the Art Room and in the Classrooms
