WILLOW - Y5/Y6
Year 6 were thrilled to meet Miranda Carter when she offered to come in and run a workshop for them. The children enjoyed looking at her paintings, listening about how she became an artist and the inspiration behind her work.
During the workshop the children learnt about mark making using a variety of natural tools, such as twigs, feathers and charcoal. They experimented with taking away the element of control by using their non-dominant hand. Miranda then went on to discuss her painting techniques and the children had the chance to experiment with watercolour to create a variety of different tones.
