Pirates of the Caribbean - Clever Pirate Art




Before we started drawing our pirates we practised how to draw faces based on Stu Duval’s drawings.
We also learnt how to use our hands to measure the size of our heads.
And then we learned how to draw hats on peoples heads. They don’t just sit right on top of your head!
Then we were ready to go.
We got a buddy to trace around our hands and feet and then we added our heads, faces and a simple body.
Next we added all our pirate details.
And finally we created our pirate names.
Which is your favourite pirate?

Hello Kids with a View,

Your pictures are indeed quite clever. I like the way they are displayed in the frame and with the little bit of motion and the swords crossing across the pictures, it looks like the pirates are falling. Great expressions on the pirates' faces!

I have one student in particular, who will adore looking at this slide show. Keep up the great work!

Sincerely,
Ms Clayton

Hi Kids with a View
I really like the way you have used block colour backgrounds to make the details on your pirates stand out clearly - it's very effective!
Why did you choose to draw pirates?

Ahoy there Kids with a View!

Your pirates are sensational! You
have all been very careful to add lots of details and used bright colours. What was the trickiest part about creating your pirate artwork?
We couldn't pick a favourite because they all had different features that made them special. We were wondering if you made up names for them too?

We think this is so cool, now we would all like to look at pirates. Kereru class loves the header for your blog. The pirate hands were very clever, so easy but so effective.

Hi Room 3,
I showed my Year 2 classroom your wonderful pictures of pirates. They would really like to make some too.

We had a practice at tracing our hands and feet today - what fun!

We would like to know which bit you found the trickiest, and which bit you found the easiest.
