Week 1

In class, we have been learning lots of facts about Emperor Penguins and have discovered that they are very nurturing animals. The male penguins endure drastic weather conditions and spend several months without food. Despite this, they are still determined to keep their eggs safe and warm. We had a little practise of doing this for ourselves.. it was quite tricky! As artists, we have been busy creating a magical watercolour background, merging colours together as well as sketching our class animal. Next week, we will be using charcoal to add definition to our sketches.
