This week Year six began to investigate and explore how ink can be used to produce abstract art and portraits. They discussed how using ink is similar to painting with watercolours and how choosing specific colours can reflect meaning and depth. As our students became more confident using ink, they began to understand how versatile and intense ink can be and began to test and trial different techniques to create a piece of art that depicted the central characters of our class novel, Oliver Twist.


I was particularly impressed with the Year six students’ attention to detail as they applied different media to convey Fagin as an unsavoury human being and how they had elements of the narrative hidden within their images.
