On Monday 8th June, it is World Oceans Day.
Every year, World Oceans Day provides a unique opportunity to honour, help protect, and conserve the world’s oceans. Oceans are very important as they generate most of the oxygen we breathe, they help feed us, regulate our climate and provide limitless inspiration!
It’s up to each one of us to help ensure that our ocean is healthy for future generations. World Oceans Day allows us to change our perspective and encourage individuals to think about what the ocean means to them, learn about the diverse creatures and think about how the ocean affects all of us.
'Could do' task
This half term, you will be making artwork related to the sea and seaside. Today
you will be drawing fish.
Go through the lesson powerpoint below, watch the film and jot down words that spring to mind.
Choose a picture of a fish from the photo pack below, or look at a real fish to draw! Choose a felt tip pen to use. You will be drawing straight in pen. Go slowly as you draw, stopping and looking carefully for more detail in each area that you can see.
Make sure your drawing almost fills the paper so that the detail can be seen.
Try to make different types of marks e.g. hard, soft, light, heavy, jagged, smooth…
Annotate the drawing with words used in the video ‘Our Friend the Sea’. What impact
does this have on the drawing?
