Easter Holidays Creativity!
Hello everyone! Your teachers will be posting lots of fun Easter things soon to keep you busy so I'm suggesting we try something a little different.....
Artists have been painting the views from their windows for centuries. As we're confined to our homes at the moment, how about we share what we can see from our windows?
You can approach this anyway you like with whatever materials you have available at home-you might need to be inventive and recycle some of your previous artworks! I don't know about you but I'm running out of paper....
Your pictures can be any size you like, you could draw your view, or paint it, make a collage, use chalks, use a drawing app on your tablets. They can be colour, black and white, technicoloured- it's up to you!
I'd love to see what you do- please post on our Twitter account. I'm very egg-cited to see them, I bet they'll be cracking!
Happy Easter! Love Mrs Couper x
Here's a beautiful painting by Pierre Bonnard from 1925, 'The Window' to give you some inspiration.
