Lesson Description

In this art class, children will be introduced to different colouring techniques. They will begin by learning about light and heavy pressure. They will learn how to apply pressure evenly when working with the heavy pressure technique. Then, they will be taught the ‘layering’ technique and the ‘scumbling’ technique. As they practise, they will discover that the scumbling technique can be used to add texture and details to their artwork. Then, the children will learn about the ‘stippling’ technique. This involves making tiny lines or dots. Then, they will be taught the ‘hatching’ technique. This involves drawing diagonal lines in any direction.

The children will also be introduced to the ‘cross hatching’ technique. This technique is a more complex version of the hatching technique. At the end of the class, the instructor will revise all the techniques that were covered, to make it easier for the learners.
