Let's Make Art @ Yeo Moor


Year 3 at Yeo Moor were lucky enough to benefit from an artist in residence workshop run by Let's Make Art.   The children began with quick warm-up sketching games to get their creativity flowing, e.g. drawing a snake in a tutu, a llama in pyjamas.  Inspired by the work of Nate Williams, the children then created their own portraits using words that described themselves.  Afterwards, they considered what personal qualities would be needed going into Year 4 and painted their own leaf with a word that showed one of these qualities.  These represented the children 'turning over a new leaf' in September and they took them home as a visual reminder of how they want to be next year.   It was an enjoyable workshop and the hall was filled with a buzz of excitement all day.
