People and Places - Art and Design Companion Project


This project teaches children about the genre of figure drawing. They study the figure drawings and urban landscapes of the artist LS Lowry and create artwork in his style to show scenes from their school.

Significant artist (LS Lowry) - 3B did a fantastic job at using LS Lowry as inspiration for their own art pieces. They then drew a figure drawing using LS Lowry for inspiration.
