KS1/2 Art – Messy Art at KS2

An art coordinator teaches a year 4 class about abstract painting Although ambitious art projects can be daunting, not least because of the potential for mess, they can extend pupils and achieve surprising results.

Here, Art Co-ordinator Peter Sanders works with Year 4 teacher, Dawn Owen, to deliver a lesson on abstract painting, using powder paints. The theme of the lesson is temperature, drawing on what the children have been learning about in science.

The programme follows the planning and preparation involved, and shows how it’s possible to keep children engaged with quite a difficult concept, without them losing concentration or the class descending into chaos.
