Write Dance Art Day

The aim was to encourage the children to think imaginatively and to record their creative processes through mark making. We spent the morning looking at film clips of different animals and copying how they moved and also thinking about the noises that they might make. In the afternoon, Becky, our Artist in Residence, covered the entire hall floor with paper and presented lots of different coloured, easily accessible paints to the children. We put out lots of different toy animals around the hall as visual stimuli. Different kinds of music were played and the children were asked which animal it made them think of; how that animal might move and what colour they might be. The movements and the choices that the children decided on were recorded through the marks that they made in the paint. It was a LOT of fun!
