I’ve been bursting to post these gorgeous, colour animal paintings by my KS2 lunch club children.
I have children come and sign up their names to create art on their lunch break, which is so sweet (they love art and the group is hugely oversubscribed). Anyway this week we’ve been talking about environmental issues, single use plastics and the effect of litter on sea life.
The children have all drawn a sea-life/marine creature and painted using watercolours. It’s lovely as a few children have come back for several days running and wanted to paint different animals again and again, their development and improvement is evident.
Experimenting with watercolours/merging shades together and layering colours is such a valuable learning curve for them as young artists…watching patterns emerge, blending and layering is such an adventure, often with unexpected results.
