Art in the classroom
It was so great to finally get into the classroom a couple of weeks ago and give the boys an art experience that hopefully gave them a taste for art.
I tried to show them how easy it can be to create some art just by working tonally and concentrating on shape, blocking in and not thinking I am drawing a Lion, but rather that I am drawing a shape that looks like this or that. Making large loose shapes let the boys feel emotion in their art too which I could see by their their eagerness to show me their work.
All of the art was wonderful and I even spotted some budding artists in the making.
