Planning Our Canvas Painting

Today we have been planning our canvas painting for next week. The children had the choice of painting a self portrait, painting of someone they know or an imaginary character.

After choosing what they wanted to do they drew and had a go at painting the figure/portrait. This helped with practicing colour mixing and finding what colours work for what they were trying to achieve. They also had the opportunity to test out different mark making tools, for example using a plastic needle to add freckles to a face or add blades of grass. We also had a hair dryer available to dry the paint so that they could practice layering paint up.

Next week we will be creating our canvas paintings.
