mark making

Children are so interesting to watch as they mark make, cut and stick, and talk about what they are doing. I only had a short time at my reception class today, where I’m artist in residence, but it was so worth while listening to them talk as they made very individual pieces of art. These are just a few examples which include a shark that eats people,  a flower garden with a tap that’s made a flood, lots of detailed shapes, filling in as many gaps as possible, lots of beautiful collage and a stunning red abstract which would make a great sculpture!

As I sat and watched it occurred to me how a number of their pieces would make incredible textiles or even large scale wall pieces. Something to plan for the future..
