We have had such an exciting first week in Year 2! We have created some leaves in Art, using soft pastels and oil pastels.
Firstly, we separated the different autumnal colours we would need. Then we added different colours onto our leaf using the end of the pastels and learnt how to blend them together by smudging them with our fingers. We loved the different autumnal shades that were created by using this method! Finally, we added the finishing details to our leaves using a dark colour of pastel but this time not smudging it. We found this an extremely fun, creative and messy way of using pastels!
