Art (2 hours) – Beast Creator

Task 1: If you have access to a printer, print out the ‘Finish off the insect’ PDF and have a go at copying the other half of the dissected bugs. Do this in pencil. If you do not have a printer, have a go at sketching the bug.

Start by working on just the outlines. You can use a ruler to measure how big the parts are if it helps. Then focus on the patterns (dots, dashes, etc.) and the shading of each part. Remember you can use different pressures when using your pencil to create different effects. Make sure you have a sharp pencil to start with and remember this is a creative task; there is not right or wrong answer so have fun and be creative.


This task will take patience and attention to detail. If you are really proud of yours, you can send them to the office email address (on the school website) and put FAO and your class teacher's name and we may put some really good ones up on our distance learning page! 


Task 2: Look at the PDF called ‘Insect Art’. Think about your responses to these questions:

  • What can you see in the photograph/painting?
  • Which colours are used?
  • When was it made?
  • What is it made of?
  • Why do you think the artist made it?
  • What kinds of insects can you see in the painting?
  • How does the image make you feel?
  • Which of the artworks you have seen today would
    you have in your home? Why?
