We have just completed a fantastic series of workshops, Basia and I looked at different ways the children can translate an idea into an artwork. For example the children created a design for a mythical beast sculpture, using paper collage. They also recalled from memory a sun set with visualization techniques. In our abstract painting workshop we go on a journey of colour, letting shapes form spontaneously on the canvas.
Abstract painting, I believe is such a wonderful introduction for children to learn colour mixing and paint application with total freedom to explore and play. – Basia
