Drawing at St Matthew's CE Primary School - Part 1

All of you at remember those crazy days of Year one when you had to draw a drunken bike and fierce tree. Well this week the first year are working with St Matthew's CE Primary School in Edgeley to do some drawings in a similar way. We are spending 3 afternoons with a group of approx. 30 Year 1 and Year 2 children (6- 7 years old). The idea behind it is linked to drawing emotions and working from imagination - which is hard when you are a grown up! I think it helped us to see how free and less precious children are about drawing. We were all suprised at how trusting, open and willing to spend time drawing the children were and we remembered what it felt like not to be so worried about whether a drawing was right or wrong. It was great fun!
