Eric Carl inspiration
1.Firstly the children create a background using sponges- A5 size. Dabbing the paint all over the paper
2. Various stations are set up with a variety of sponges, rollers, printing stamps, forks, toothpicks. Here the children go to each station making a variety of coloured papers.
3. The children then sketch a design for their 'Garden Theme' and then go about making the shapes for each part of the composition from their coloured papers they have painted. Shapes being the key here- draw on the back of the paper, then cut out and arrange onto the background.
The end result is always effective and very striking.
