This is our new project - Jon Burgerman.
This artist is from my home town in England and I was first introduced to his work during a teaching placement. I really love the possibilities when teaching with his work. and this week we started with automatic drawings. Pupils closed their eyes and drew a series of lines and shapes. They then turned their doodles into monsters inspired by Jon Burgermans art.

During Key Stage 2 pupils develop their creativity and imagination through more complex activities. These help to build on their skills and improve their control of materials, tools and techniques. They increase their critical awareness of the roles and purposes of art, craft and design in different times and cultures. They become more confident in using visual and tactile elements and materials and processes to communicate what they see, feel and think.
