oh the variations!

We had a wonderful storytime at our Riverbend workshop last week as we read 'Why I love Australia' by Bancroft. The children loved the illustrations and several spin-off conversations emerged regarding what the boldly coloured + patterned illustrations reminded them of!
These illustrations were just the springboard for our lesson on tessellations + colour theory as we looked at work by MC Escher and Paul Klee.
They were itching to create + paint!
We all started out 'within the lines of geometry' and oh the variations as they planned+painted! Some decided geometry wasn't quite their thing...and that's ok, these workshops are open ended and so while we provide the inspration and framework, the work your children produce is entirely unique, their own...and beautiful!!
