8 and 9 year olds
Today's art has been inspired by the work of New Zealand artist, Ted Dutch.
We learnt a little about his background, including his interest in drawing from the early age of 6 and his drawings of London (where he is from) during the blitz when he was 12.
After looking at several examples of his work, it was easy for the children to identify Ted's signature faces. I surrounded the children with Ted's images and those of robots.
They made several drawings in Ted's style, using black crayon.
They had a choice of black pens or kebab sticks and Indian ink to draw their images.
They surrounded them with circuit boards patterns using coloured wax crayon. This was covered with dye of the same colour.
A little added colour was the final touch.
