Today we painted our bowls. I have to say this was not as successful as I would have liked it to be. I tried to ask students to add detail and tissue paper to their bowls but it seemed that not a lot of thought went into the detail and colour palette.
I think just letting them dive into into it and make creative decisions as they go along was not the best idea!
Next time I would do a base layer and when that is dry I would ask them to plan and add detail with either similar or contrasting colours
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.
