Drawing Feathers: Perfect for Mark Making
By Paula Briggs
Our Drawing Feathers workshop with children aged 6 to 10 was a great opportunity for the children to put to use all the mark making skills they had been learning over the past few weeks, and I was amazed by the quality of the drawings - some were really sophisticated in their use of materials, line and colour.
The image below of a Peacock Feather drawn by John Ruskin inspired the workshop - I used to visit the Ruskin Gallery in Sheffield. His drawn feather is small but it draws you in.
