During this starter activity we used critical thinking skills to create a radial design using only postit notes. Students had 10 minutes to make a symmetrical radial design.
Students looked at Mandalas to add a design to their colour wheels. We focused on understanding how to make a radial design. Following this we extended our colour theory by creating tints, tones and shades using coloured pencils.
Adding tints, tones and shades
After creating our radial design mandala we then used white, grey and black pencil crayon to add tints, tones and shades to our designs.
Pupils should be taught to develop their creativity and ideas, and increase proficiency in their execution. They should develop a critical understanding of artists, architects and designers, expressing reasoned judgements that can inform their own work.
