A Look Inside The Classroom
How to use an art journal with children
Take your journals out with you! You can use them in lots of ways:
:: to sketch your surroundings, or interesting things you see
:: to draw a favourite memory from the day
:: to write down lists: 10 things we saw at the beach…on a walk, in the garden
:: to scribble down idea words and images: how does the forest make you feel?
:: to stick in photographs of things you’ve done and places you’ve been
:: to scrapbook in tickets and maps from your days out
:: to include leaves, pressed flowers and other treasures you collect
:: to use any way you like for lots of drawing and writing!!
Use them when you need a pause under a shady tree on a very hot day, in the car on the way back from a day out, and at home when you’re having a quiet day.
The books are perfect for everyone, from pre-readers who can fill their pages with drawings, to mamas, who also want to join in the creative fun!
