Art task-A view from your window
Please send your pictures of the view from your window to Mrs Baumber on starz by 3.30 today if possible so we can get as many on the website - sign your first name at the bottom of your picture so we know who the artist is.
The book Belonging by Jeannie Baker uses beautiful illustrations to document how the view out of a girl’s window changes over time.

Look closely at the drawings and consider how the illustrator has used perspective.
Victorian arts captured the changing world around them, from countryside scenes to cityscapes. Choose a window and sketch the view from it.
Be creative! Are you going to choose the view from your kitchen window or maybe a car window? Are you going to include the window frame or just the scene outside? Maybe you can capture your street with no cars, which reflects the current lockdown? Is it going to be black and white or colour?
Use a pencil to sketch your picture – please take a photo for the website. Once your sketch is complete, consider using paints or pencil to add colour.
