On Tuesday 16 May Reception were really excited to welcome the talented artist and illustrator Anne Wilson to the Brae. Using her beautiful pictures from the book ‘Red Alert! 15 Endangered Animals Fighting to Survive’, Anne explained the role of an illustrator and the techniques she used to make the artwork. The Reception classes then followed the process Anne uses for her illustrations to create their own pictures using different techniques and several layers. Anne taught the girls how to draw a fish and painted it with watercolours. They then added interesting details in pen and decorated the backgrounds with collage. We are really proud of the incredible results of the day and look forward to displaying the artwork at our summer exhibition.
