Louise Pasquill began the term looking at Picasso with our youngest art club members in Reception and Year 1. Picasso has an exhibition at Tate Modern at the moment and famously said
Every Child is an artist, the problem is how to remain one when one grows up….
I took my children to see the exhibition during the Easter holidays and they both enjoyed a little drawing
They went on to look at the story ‘The Pencil and talked about favourite colours and words associated with them – peaceful, calm, strong, gentle, masculine and feminine.
We made more drawings in response.
We have also been revelling in the summer sun, drawing the Summer Sun inspired by Damien Hirst’s new paintings, which are also influenced by Bonnard.
We have also been drawing in sand with cotton buds and sending messages from a desert island for seagulls to deliver.
