Art Club

Back to art club today and we’re thinking about journeys to school with the idea of sharing the work by creating a 3D map and trail in the hall on the last week. All four sessions will encourage careful looking at things that might be passed unnoticed.

Today our starting point was home and the children talked about their houses and tried to remember as many details as possible in a drawing. Where possible I hope to use materials that the children might encounter on their journey so I found some old flat surface bricks to paint their houses onto. We discussed how they could make marks on the bricks and which media would be most successful. Most of them tried paint with wax crayons and some children carried on to make marks in the wet paint with a pencil.

Here’s what they got up to so far:
