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!
