Working collaboratively, using your imagination and taking some risks..

Today my year 7 class had to work together to create unusual, whacky plant forms.

They were given a piece of A5 paper and folded it into three sections. The first person had to draw half a flower head or plant, then pass it along. The second person drew the other half of the plant and the third did the stalk, stem or grasses.

The results were fantastic. Creative, fun and it helped each student push their ideas that little bit further by having someone else’s ideas and inspiration integrated into their work. They had to think quickly and take risks, not being too precious about their drawing.

They will now be painted using watercolour.

Here are some results…
