Made by students of grade 6
- drawing sheets A1 size
- tempera paint
Stick some large sheets together with tape and lay them on a group tables of equal height.
Groups of four students at the same time draw little forms or doodles on this sheet using black tempera. The drawings should not touch each other. When all doodles are finished, have a couple of kids connect them by straight black lines.
Paint all surfaces and doodles with tempera. Each student chooses a colour and paints some surfaces or doodles. Be sure to avoid surfaces with the same colour next to each other.
This lesson can be done in every grade by varying subject or colours: choose only primary colours and straight forms to create a Mondrian version.
Or choose a theme for the doodles, like Christmas, food or sports.
Great success in which variation whatsoever is guaranteed!
The proud artists of grade 6 all together!
