Drawing Spiral Snails

By Tracy McGuinness-Kelly

I’d like to share this art project based on drawing spirals, which can relate to a mini-beast topic in school, or stand alone as a drawing workshop.

Working with children of reception age, we talked briefly about our experience of the spiral in nature: snail shells, whirlpools, flowers etc then I did a quick demonstration of drawing a spiral.

Each child then created a spiral on a large square of white cartridge paper or black sugar paper, using chalk and oil pastels.
