In our second and third sessions this term at Pelham primary school we continued to explore mark making using the circle as a starting point.
Firstly we used charcoal, graphite sticks and chalk on black and white circles then we used felt tips and pastels on a variety of different coloured circles
We were very enthusiastic and DO like to make a mess!
Some of us didn’t like the mess and preferred to work with felt tips….
Our youngest artists love to collaborate. They worked on giant circles drawing and layering; cutting into and sticking our experimental work together in varying shapes and arrangements.
We sat in a circle outside discussing objects that are round. We made circles with our bodies and with things we found around the playground.
Afterwards we began some circle paintings.
They remind me of the Brazillian artist Beatriz Milhaz
