This project is a combination of a few ideas that I came across on Pinterest but the main idea is here. I wanted something that could be done in a one hour session that also wasn't too difficult as I wasn't sure about the general ability of the group.
- Thick cartridge paper
- Masking tape
- Black marker
- Oil pastels
Firstly, you need to take your paper and place it onto newspaper or some sort of protection for the table. Take the masking tape and apply a few strip across the page in whatever shape or pattern you prefer. Some of the class went for 6 even squares and others did a kind of union jack, whatever patterns is fine. If you look closely you'll be able to see the tape stuck on in my example below.
Use the black marker to write words that describe you or things you like in each different section. Use oil pastels to decorate each section with fun, wavy lines and designs. I told the class to use a colour wheel to help them find a complementary colour.
And there you have it. I will post the results from some of the children in the club over the next few days. They came out beautifully and I'm incredibly impressed.
