Lesson Description

In this art class, children will create a cactus.They will learn how to draw a cactus using different shapes and lines. They will be taught how to draw the stem and the flower of the cactus. They will learn how to blend different colours to create a new colour. They will understand how they can use the ‘layering’ technique to create texture. They will also learn how to paint the cactus neatly. As they practise, children will learn to paint carefully around the edges.

The children will learn how to use the dabbing technique to create a background for their drawing. They will discover that they can use horizontal strokes to create the ‘stage’ for their drawing. The children will learn how to use the bristles of the brush to create thorn details on the cactus. Over time, they will become better at creating artwork with paint!
