Young Art Leaders working with infant school students.
Year 9 students from Sundorne have been paired up with children
from the infants school. They have been visiting the infants school and
undertaking drawing and painting tasks with the younger children.
This one to one tuition has enabled the younger children to explore new
tecniques in their art work,including adding tone and texture to their
The first task they do is develope the use of tone by understanding
how differnt pressure with a pencil can produce light and dark effects
to their drawings.
The second task involves using water colour paints, understanding the
terms primary and secondary colours, and how to mix colours and use
the colour wheel to help get the best results.
This interaction with younger students helps them to develope their
own social skills and provides them with the opportunity to pass on
the skills they have learnt in the art department at Sundorne.
