Before I start I need to say that I am not artistic at all. I am a science gal at heart so may seem really dim when I ask this... I really want to do some silk painting for Art week. Our theme is forests and I have found a few gorgeous pieces we can use as inspiration for our own work. The problem is I have no idea about the sort of skills I need to focus on before I start teaching them how to paint using silk. Any pointers? I was thinking some drawing/ proportion/ perspective stuff before beginning to look at how to ... I am quite tight for time as well due to the end of year performance being the Yr 6 responsibility so would really appreciate ANY pointers and advice anyone can give!
