YuuMii Art Classes!

YuuMii WorkShop : Term 1

Finally, I have been providing art lessons for the local Home Ed Families, in particular, the Nurture Learning Gang! We are almost at the end of the first term, and we have covered 2-3 projects. 

The goals that I have had have been to loosely follow the AUS National Syllabus, make it our own and get as messy as possible. 

The lessons consist of two groups: Stage 1 (Fish and Sea Creatures) and Stage 2 (Insects and Dragons) children. These children were aged 6-12, this can be a challenge! Keeping the interest of the youngest and the oldest children is the hardest part. To do this, I keep to the general lesson plan and then tailor the lesson to suit the children that need encouragement.

Here are some of the images from the Term 1:

Creating our own Monsters, from Inspecting Insects, and Dissecting Dragons (St2) and Sea-Real Sea Creature parts (St1).

Finally, lessons on Watercolours. This I taught to both Stage groups, which went better than expected!

I will post the final works from the term in my next post. These children were amazing! I had such fun working with them, showing them some new techniques.
