Six and seven year olds.
The children made their own henna designs, which carries on with our multicultural art focus. They made a hand template which they copied onto coloured paper. They drew their designs on with a variety of drawing tools, depending on the colour of paper. They arranged their hands on coloured card, considering negative space.
They worked in groups of 4 or 5 to cover a large piece of paper with hands. I asked then to make the hands overlap which required a bit of thought for them to achieve. They added henna designs to the hands on top. This activity was a highlight for the children.
