CONTINUOUS LINE DRAWING
I’ve recently started running a drawing club for KS1 children. In one session, 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 some of the results were pretty astonishing!
A BIG DRAW EVENT
Recently, with the help of a group of Year 6 children, I organised a ‘Big Draw’ event (https://thebigdraw.org/) for children, parents and teachers. The theme this year was ‘Play’ and so we had a doodling party. The children prepared large sheets of paper and added 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! We’re planning to run another one this term.
