8 year olds.
The children have done a lot of work this term about the causes and effects of pollution on our environment.
I asked them to decide what message they would like to make through their art.
They began by creating a border either using pattern or images that support their message. They used white oil pastels on coloured pastel paper. After viewing some of John Bevan Fords work, the children chose a limited colour pallet. They stuck to only those colours and shades when they coloured their borders.
The main image in the centre is magazine collage on card which was cut out and attached using a block of foam board behind. If they wanted to add text, they could use letters cut out of the magazines.
Some of the work is obscure, but the children's stories bring them to life.
