    I love this. Have just finished a drawing with scissors project where we initially explored colour freely (mostly playing with watercolours and just being led across and over a sheet of paper by adding a bit here – or there to see what happens etc) ….followed by contour drawings from observation ….followed by choosing our colours (having looked at the primaries and secondaries) and then painting our sheets with chosen colours. (Nice coincidence about the Cutlure Show on Matisse’s cut outs) then cutting shapes from our contour drawings, and then cutting some random shapes.
    We will re-visit this way of working at some point as I feel there is so much more to be done – but I love the discussions you mentioned around shapes talking to each other and colours / pattern affecting a simple shape. Great inspiration and food for thought…
    Thanks again!

    The images in this post remind me a bit of the shapes that came out of teenagers discovering intuitive shapes through drawing – interestingly they look like they’re from the same Ben Nicholson era

      Maybe it’s the 1950’s wallpaper too…?

      Next week I think we’ll make sculptures with these shapes… inspired by the amazing cardboard sculptures at Ridgefield art week… /thinking-three-dimensionally-with-cardboard/ and of course Ben Nicholson

    These are wonderful and it’s a such a good way to get them to work with art and to produce art. I loved the whole thing.

    Love this! Where did you source the wallpaper samples from?

      We were given old wallpaper sample books (if you go in shops they will sometimes give you them)…
