Exploring Set Design
We’ve spent more time this term developing our use of charcoal. We created a scene using toys and turned all the lights off. Once it was dark we shone a torch on the scene we had created and used our charcoal to create the shadows we could see.
To begin our art topic this term we spent the afternoon paying with the charcoal. We learnt how we can manipulate the charcoal itself and smudge using fingers, rubbers and brushes to create the effect we wanted. We were very impressed with the results.
