I went to a workshop recently where they introduced the new WCED art competition. The theme would be “story”. For the example project we teacher’s did, the leader read a story to us. We had to choose the part of the story that stood out the most for us and then express this through an artwork. We were encouraged to be expressive by using different media, collaging and using frotage. The bottom picture is the one I made. I decided to try it out with my grade 4s, using the story: Where the wild things are. The picture below is the one I made.
Practice for a class I did on “Where the wild things are”. The kids would have to come up with a new wild thing by combining different creatures.
