At Pelham School we have been inspired by Miro, his use of shape and his limited colour palette
We started our first session with a dice game and different shapes inspired by Miro.
The children created their own fantasy creature or person using shapes indicated by the number of the dice.
We then coloured the different shapes with wax crayons and finished with a watercolour wash.
In our next two sessions we drew shapes on different bits of card and cardboard from cut up boxes. We painted them and cut out the shapes.
We then painted also the back of each piece with just one flat colour always choosing between red, yellow, blue, green and black.
We then cut slits into our different cardboard shapes and stuck them together to create a sculpture.
