Making Charcoal - 11 January 2019

Class: Owls Year: 2018 - 2019

Our topic this half term is the painter LS Lowry, we have been using different tools to draw and paint in the style of Lowry.  In Outdoor Learning this week we made charcoal, putting sticks in a biscuit tin on the fire, watching the smoke rise from tin as the sticks turned to charcoal.  When our charcoal had cooled we used it to draw matchstick people in the style of Lowry.
