Brian Pollard Visit - 18.09.17

This afternoon, year 5 had a visit from local artist Brian Pollard to show us how to draw in his style as we've been learning about his work in art.  Most of his work has three zones (the sky, the sea and the ground) so we'd already painted the backgrounds before he came in.  Then, he showed us how to paint people, dogs, balloons, planes and helicopters to fill up our scene.  We were all surprised to see he did most of his drawings by joining simple shapes together!  His visit was really fun and we all enjoyed it.
