Yr 5-6 - Ocean Art

Published: 19 Jun '24

Years 5 and 6 have completed their final mixed media pieces in the style of contemporary illustrator Yellena James. These began with pencil drawings of shapes inspired by the environment and natural forms, such as shells and coral, along with ocean creatures. The children followed James' techniques to produce a layered effect - creating watercolour backgrounds which were then developed with lines, dots and dashes to add detail, using fine-liner pens. 


It is lovely to see the children's individual style as artists coming through in their work, and they were deservedly proud of these amazing final pieces.
