What I Miss (and Don’t Miss) About Working Outside the Home (House*Tweaking)
"I did the drawing challenge with my year 1 children at Northern Saint Primary School in Sunderland. We observed shells and played lots of warm up games to really look at the different marks on a shell. We used milk powder solution and pastels on fabric to create our final pieces. Great fun and beautiful outcomes".
Warm-up Drawing Exercise: Making Stronger Drawings When working with children (or adults!) we try to do lots of mark making exercises to encourage them to use the whole range of values a pencil can make – from the palest to the darkest lines to help the children understand how they could make really strong, powerful and confident drawings, rather than the tentative marks which some children naturally make. The children loved it!
