Today we will be sketching Stone age tools using a variety of techniques to show shadow and detail.


In your home learning pack there are some images of Stone Age tool –we learnt about what they were made from and their uses last week.  We will use our pencils to create soft, light stokes that will allow us to build shape, depth and detail within our sketching.


Your sketching does not need to be perfect!  It is about developing drawing skills.  The more we practise the better we get!  We will develop our sketching skills throughout the year with a variety of different objects to sketch.
