Junior School

A school where everyone can succeed



The children at school completed this lesson last week.

Step1 - Research the artist Pablo Picasso.


Step 2 - Design your creative face on paper


Step 3 - Use scrap cardboard to cut out the different shapes of your face. Remember to build layers by stacking the cardboard. Glue the pieces together and paint it.


Look at some of the amazing faces created in school!




Watch the clip above. In this clip, Emma Majury takes us through a step-by-step demonstration of how to create a landscape painting using composition sketching, colour wash and colour mixing to create moods and effects within a painting, taking inspiration from the world around us. She shows how to use different tools such as sticks and spatulas as well as brushes to apply the paint to create different textures on the paper surface, and how applying paint to wet paper can create an abstract effect such as fireworks, flowers or stars.


You can experiment with different painting techniques, materials and types of paint just as Emma Majury show us in the clip. Think back to the work we did in school with colour mixing primary colours to make secondary colours. If you don't have paint at home, can you experiment with different media, such as felt pens or crayons?


Have a go...

Explore different effects on wet, dry and textured paper.
