    It sounds like a really fun creative process (similar to covering the tables with paper – having a few materials out and drawing to a variety of music pieces from Bach to Miles Davis to Zappa, which i have done with 15 / 16 year olds as well as 11 year olds – both successfully.

    I especially loved the water soluble graphite and turbulent water idea (maybe could be developed to work with other elements – material; eg. air – light pencil marks / pastels; earth – charcoal / oil pastels etc).

    I wonder if any shy children might feel lost with so much going on, also if it would work with a larger age range (6/7 – 12?)

      Thanks for adding these ideas to the pot!
      I did have one shy girl and I kind of gave her secret challenges to make her feel special (but not in the lime light)… But yes I can see a shy child might be overwhelmed. This group is very familiar with each other which helps enormously with the trust thing…

      If you try it with a wider age range pls let me know ho you get on. See sheila’s post too: http://www.accessart.org.uk/?p=11816 A big visual conversation with teenagers

    This was fun too – ‘A visual conversation’ http://www.accessart.org.uk/?p=4618 A little bit like the game ‘consequences’ – use bright, flip board markers for max. effect!-)
