Art Lesson wc8th June

Art ideas

  • Look in the mirror and draw a self-portrait.
  • Create a portrait of a different person or a pet. You can use a picture of them if they won’t sit still for long enough.
  • Draw or paint a landscape picture (showing the view out of your window).
  • Produce a ‘still life’ picture that shows a bowl of fruit, a collection of your favourite toys or some other objects.
  • Think about your favourite book and design a new cover for it.
  • Design a superhero. What special powers will they have and how might they help people?
  • Create some pictures of animals using fingerprint painting!
  • Use objects from nature to create a picture. Could you take a photo of your work?
  • Find some rocks and paint them!
  • Play ‘Pictionary’. Draw a picture that represents your favourite book or movie (without using any words) and ask somebody else to guess what you are drawing.
  • Draw a picture without taking your pencil off the page.
  • Draw a new illustration for a book. Will you keep it in the same style, or try something else?
  • Make a doodle drawing. Doodle a random shape onto a page, then turn it into an animal or object.
  • Make your own card game. This could be a simple game of ‘Snap’, ‘Matching Pairs’ or a ‘Top Trumps’ style game.
  • Design a home for your favourite movie or book character.
  • Invent a machine that would improve your life in some way.
