Year 3 absolutely love their new sketch books and practising new techniques and skills in them.  Today we were learning about still life and different ways to make our drawings look realistic like using different kinds of shading to show light and shadow.  We also learnt how important it was to look and not imagine what we think we see but what is really there.  We tried to break down the objects we were sketching into shapes to make it easier to draw and unlike when we write in class we were allowed to rub out our mistakes.
