KS1 Art inspired by Quentin Blake

The artist Quentin Blake is most famous for his illustrations of Roald Dahl’s stories. The children created their own illustrations of Willy Wonka, using Quentin Blake’s as a reference. We also used the windows as a lightbox to trace the photo – similar to how Quentin Blake creates his pictures! After practising the technique of hatching and cross hatching, they used this technique to add tone to their drawings. Take a look at the fantastic outcomes!

The children at home also enjoyed creating their artwork, and even some of the grown ups had a go to!

Gracie in Y2O enjoyed this session in school so much, that she went home and did another illustration herself!
