I think Friedensreich Hundertwasser's work is so appealing to kids. His bold, colourful paintings with the added element of pattern reminds me of children's early paintings.
We began this meeting looking at and discussing Hundertwasser’s ‘five skins’ diagram and some of his artworks connected to it. I asked the kids to design a poster for the environment. They thought of a slogan and with Hundertwasser’s style of layers in mind created their posters.
It was great to see them coming up with their concepts and then incorporating the 'layered' pattern into the composition.
