Yesterday's art kids art session was inspired by Sandra Silberzweig. As colourful and happy her artworks are was the level of our fun!!
I guided the kids along at the beginning with the basic lines of the face as Sandra does in her artworks. We talked about the use of colour and pattern and I encouraged the children to divide their drawing up into lots of areas to fill.
We used dry pastels which was a new medium to the kids. Most of them seemed to enjoy the dusty 'mess' the pastels made and weren't afraid of getting dirty.
Even though everyone started of with the same instruction for the basic lines, each child took their artwork in their own direction. It was so much fun to watch how they explored using the pastels.
All of the artworks turned out big, bold and beautiful!!
