We don’t just have to paint on paper – the world is full of textures and materials which we can use as surfaces for artwork!
How can we transform the surfaces around us by using line, colour and shape, and how can we make the objects we decorate reflect our personality?
The way it feels to add paint or collage to a surface changes depending upon the qualities of that surface. Is it textured or smooth? Shiny or absorbent? What shape is it? What kinds of tool might we use to paint with? What do the colours look like and what kinds of marks might we make? Does the object or surface we are painting on give us clues as to what we might paint?
Resources in this section encourage EYFS and SEND learners to be open and inventive about the surfaces on which they make art.
