Pen and Ink Yr 5/6 drawings

Firstly I gave the students15 squares to experiment with a variety of 'doodles'.  We looked at how you can create movement, depth, tone and shape with a humble fine point black pen.

Next they used a natural  setting as inspiration to use some of their doodles to within the image.

Once their image was complete, I photocopied the image on to another coloured piece of paper.  
The students then cut the coloured piece up into waves, or whatever desired pieces and restuck the image back together onto the white image.
Below are some of the images the Year 5/6 students created.

I really liked this boys interpretation of under the ocean.

Lots of block out areas help the tree to really stand out.

Simple yet elegant!
