Alice Tuff's insight:

Children's escapism within art. What children believe art should be - paint on canvas. Different views really connecting - lying down and doing impressions. How some take things really literally and others see what they want too! How did he do it? Questioning. Also questioning what we can class as art.

Alice Tuff's insight:

To show to the class. Complete freedom. Not over thought as this wouldn't be as natural. Line doesn't have to make something you recognise from reality! Pollock was groundbreaking for his time. New methods - not traditional. Thinking about what you can use to make art! Not something from the art cupboard!

Alice Tuff's insight:

Getting the students involved in their surroundings. Use of technology beneficial to some. Use of viewfinder sectioning off the natural environment imagining it on the page. Seeing previous years work will inspire and push to do something even greater! Can all create something quite different.
