    Really want to try this with my Year 7s. Where did you get the amazing images from?

      I just googled “fly” “spider” etc – I think I might have added “isolated on white”…

        I tried it with my classes, as part of a larger unit of work using insects to develop observational drawing.

        Insects is a great theme for boys and girls, and the colours and forms are really inspirational.

        Here are some of the outcomes.

            and another…

            We used charcoal and soft pastels, so a slightly different look

              Zoe, Really lovely to see these dynamic images and see year 7s experiment so openly with mark making and expressive observational drawing. Thanks very much for sharing these!
