Week 2

Drawing Houses and Streets

This week we are going to create some house and street pictures.

We are going to draw or paint a terrace of houses.

A terrace is a street of houses all joined together like this:-


First let's practise drawing houses. You can copy some of these or use your own ideas.

Now we are going to create a terrace of houses or a street.

Create a background first with a wash or coloured pencils. Make a road at the bottom of your sheet.

Next on another sheet of paper draw or paint your houses. You can draw them separately or in a terrace.

Make them colourful and each one different.

When you have finished them you could outline all the details with a black pen.

Now cut them out and stick them along your road to create your street or terrace.

There are some ideas underneath.


I am looking forward to seeing your art work

Week 3

Creating Hot Air Balloons

In geography we have been learning about a bridseye view and aerial maps.

One of the ways you can get an aerial view for yourself is from a hot air balloon!

This week design a hot air balloon (there is a template).

Make it as colourful and bright as you can. There are some ideas for you to use as inspiration!

You could use:-

  • coloured pencils
  • felt tips
  • paint
  • pastels
  • collage.

When you have created your balloon cut it out carefully.

Now use one of the maps below or find a map or atlas at home and fly your balloon over it.

What can you see below you?

Can you spot roads, rivers, houses, towns, green spaces, forests?

Have fun!
