Before the lesson
- To draw cartoon characters, inspired by the style of other artists
Pupils should be taught to:
- Pupils should be taught to develop their techniques, including their control and their use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design
- About great artists, architects and designers in history
Children who are less able: Remind less confident drawers that A illustration or animated film designed to be funny characters are simple and there is no ‘right’ way to draw them.
Children who are more able: Could suggest how the scene plays out – what should each character do to make the scene happier?
More confident drawers will add details to their cartoon characters to personalise them and make them recognisable (e.g. Mum’s long hair).
