Dunkirk Primary School

Drawing and Shading

For our art lessons this half-term we have been practising our drawing and shading techniques by drawing pictures that were drawn by Victorian Naturalists.

Beatrix Potter was born in Victorian Times and became very famous as a naturalist and as the author and illustrator of children's books about animals.  We found out about her life and then we drew Peter Rabbit.

In Victorian times, before the invention of the camera, the only way for people capture the image of an animal was through drawing.  These are our foxes.
