Using each other and the art teachers as models pupils made studies in timed tasks from as little as seven seconds up to 30 minutes. They were challenged to draw in ways that made them uncomfortable at times. Drawing with extended arms and two pencils at a time were particularly tricky to master.

We are also hoping to do a Green Day where every pupil comes in wearing something green and we learn more about the environment.
