CONTINUOUS LINE DRAWING

Incredibly, these continuous line drawings were created by KS1 children!

I asked the children to draw a collection of objects without taking their pencil off the page.  They were very serious and focused throughout the session and the results were simply wonderful.

A BIG DRAW EVENT  

I organise an annual ‘Big Draw’ event (https://thebigdraw.org/) for children, parents and teachers.  The pictures below are from my first event.  The theme that year was ‘Play’ and so we had a doodling party.

Children helped to prepare large sheets of paper adding various starting points such as cut outs from magazines, finger prints and scribbles.  Our guests were then invited to add to these with there own doodles or to create their own drawings from scratch.

We provided pencils, pens and cushions to sit on and that was about it.  It was pretty simple to organise and a lot of fun!
