Welcome to Athelstan Community Primary School

umbrellas

Its Arts Week, and this year we have been researching and exploring the painting Umbrellas by Auguste Renoir. This painting's theme, as the title suggests, is people holding umbrellas. We used this as inspiration for developing our own sketching skills. We practised different ways to create shadow and depth in a drawing, such as cross hatching, smudging and hatching. 

We also learnt how to mix colours accurately by using a colour wheel.
