Learning Focus: to use natural events to inspire our own artwork.

Yesterday we looked at the artwork of others and thought about our own likes and dislikes.  
Today, we are going to begin to think about ideas for our own artwork. We will use videos of actual eruptions and begin to record some ideas. 


The activity today is to think of how you might describe the sights, sounds, smells, emotions linked to an eruption.  (I am presuming that none of you have witnessed an actual eruption!)

Step 1 - get a sheet of paper and a pencil or pen ready to record your ideas. 
Step 2 - write a heading ‘VOLCANO’ in the centre of the page (you can use bubble writing and add some colour too!).

Step 3 - begin watching the video clips below.  Make sure you record any ideas AS YOU GO ALONG.  You can write descriptive words and short phrases around your heading.  Try to think about all the senses.  Write as many words/phrases as you can! At least 15-20 in total about all 4 clips.  

Take a look at the video clip below.  This is what the example is based on.  There is also a quick movie file which explains what I did.
