Hearts and Flowers with Year 1

At Pelham after-school Art Club children have been thinking about the colours that spring have yet to bring and the meaning of Love. With Valentines day this weekend there are some lovely messages in this work that is bursting with colour and warmth.


Louise Pasquill has just take over our year 1 group at Pelham and began with an explosion of colour.


The children looked at spring flowers, the shapes of the petals and how colours bleed together.


Louise demonstrated how to use coloured pens, food dyes and water to make patterns. She taught children to use simple tools to make the colours bleed together – just like in nature.

Coffee filters are made of great absorbent material. Medicine pipettes and cotton wool buds are easy tools for tiny hands.

The finished papers were left to dry. Later they were sprayed with rose water, arranged into petal shapes, given stalks and stamen and arranged into a bouquet.
