    This is a brilliant idea. Anything that encourages collaborative working is good and it will also develop their observation skills . I love the finished project

      Hi Jane – thanks for your positive response to the project – it was great fun and the collaborative aspect worked brilliantly – the children were really keen to support and critique (positively) each other to achieve a great group piece 🙂

    How exciting! Am so impressed with the facilitation of such a complex approach; somehow making it all manageable, pleasurable and satisfying. The students must feel so proud and enabled. Ready for new experiences. A pleasure to watch.

      Hi Pat – thanks for your enthusiasm – it’s always a fun challenge getting the practicalities sorted out to enable something like this to come together 🙂 and the children and teachers at the school were all great to work with too.

    Great inspiration, thank you. As we have moved school to a more rural area I would like to incorporate this wonderful idea into my teaching.

      Hi Evelyn, thanks for your interest – which lovely part of rural England are you in? This project was facilitated by SPAEDA who are a great Arts Organisation working with artists and educators in Somerset. Their website is: http://www.spaead.org.uk

    A very beautiful approach, I can see how much you had to really think about the process before you started. the children look totally engaged and I am sure they have learnt some invaluable skills they can use again. I am fairly new to teaching art after working as a professional illustrator for many years, so it really helps me tremendously to see such a bold approach to painting.
    thanks, I also love the fox painting in the first picture, it looks absolutely gorgeous!

    Hi Tracy I’m pleased you enjoyed looking at the project resource. It was a really good day. In think it’s so important for the children to learn about the different properties of materials and processes so they can go on to use them with real confidence. Being well planned and organised is a really important part of a day like this so everything runs smoothly and everyone knows what they are doing – then let the fun begin!

    This work is incredible, I love the freshness and vigour.Breaking it down into different processes gives the students an accessible way to free up their working method.
