Today was a muggy start, and a drive up a very dark and dreary Townhill, visibility was about a foot, sea view there was not! We started with the youngest groups and did some 'big draw' story drawing with charcoal and rubbers, all got very messy but just about managed to stay dry. The weather cleared by the time we got to our last class of the day, therefore we were able to do the planned exercises. We used the warm up (finding your viewfinder) then moved on to clip board drawing of horizon lines and on inside to printing the skies. From this the children then coloured in the rest from memory. We are back with Sea View tomorrow so we have been able to leave most of our kit there ready for tomorrow’s classes.
I felt it was easier to work with the younger students, as they were more willing to listen and to contribute ideas and comments. Whereas the older ones were more easily bored with the simplistic activities and slow pace requiring patience that not all had.
We did have some real super stars today, and got help between groups from a number of children, so we would like to say a big thank you to you!
