Where the Wild Things Are M12

Carrie's lesson

 After reading 'Where the wild things are' by Maurice Sendak, we talked about the features of a 'wild thing' ...fangs, scary eyes, horns, spikey bodies, were a few of the features mentioned. I then talked about the process of scraffito. They drew a ruler width border and filled in the middle with bright, bold, light colours, making sure all the white paper was covered. Many started filling the borders with patterns to allow others to finish the first stage. The oil pastel was then covered in black acrylic and given time to dry before the next stage.

The children had to make up their own 'wild thing' characters, and create a forest or jungle setting. They loved the process of scraping back to reveal the colour and they did a fantastic job with their characters. They finished off with colourful patterned borders to frame their work. Great work M12!
