1. Create a simple abstract design and colour it in with oil pastel (don't use any black).
2. Paint the letter (backwards) thick on a laminated sheet.
Scratch a design into the paint with the back of a paintbrush.
3. Place the oil pastel design carefully over the laminated sheet.
4. Rub firmly, but gently over the back, peel back and reveal the design!
It always looks amazing!
TIP: some of my pupils couldn't write the letter backwards, so I drew it out on some scrap paper for the to copy.
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.
