The teachers had designed the art week after consulting the kids about what they would want to learn. I certainly don't remember being consulted about what I wanted to learn when I was at Primary school in the eighties .. changed days for the better!
Looking at Scottish Artist John Bellany, (link here) I asked the kids to paint themselves at home in their living rooms doing their favourite hobby .. and no TV screens!
Using the double loading painting technique, we all got really messy and made colourful paintings which defied reality .. there were paintings of football pitches, swimming pools and even a velodrome in living rooms! Who cares about making sense and reality when you can let your imagination run riot when you're painting!
