Gretchen's lesson with 7 & 8 year olds
We are making art with a dual purpose this term. We would like every child to have a piece of art on display in our art auction in September. Also to have a piece of art to offer to their parents as a possible calendar (fundraiser) So where we can double up, we will.
Today's lesson will work. The children have made a personalised mandala. They made a series of designs representing different aspects of their lives...their favourite number, shape, sport, their place in their families, their age, etc.
They chose their 4 favourite images. These were drawn around a circle, creating a repeating pattern.
|A little bit of gold paint added interest.|
