Mady by Evelina, 11 years oldYou need:
Every child gets a strip white drawing paper (A2 size, cut lengthwise in three parts). Fingerpaint your own flower. Realistic or not, it's all right. The only restriction: the stalk and leaves must be green. The flower should be as high as the sheet.Cut the flower leaving a white edge from about 0,5 cm. Paste all flowers on a coloured background. Cut a strip of grass from crepe paper and paste this in front of the flowers.
Dutch children wrote poems about the sea: Poet near the sea. A jury has selected forty poems. These poems are printed on signs and placed along the coast of the Netherlands. From north to south, you may see them. This lesson is based on that idea. You need:
Made by Lotte, 10 years oldYou need:
Talk about food. What do you like most? What is healthy food? Why do we have to eat vegetables and fruit? What about burgers and fries? Talk about china and cutlery and how a table has to be set.
Draw the meal you like most. Draw everything from above; so a glass is just a circle. Draw your plate with food, a saucer, a glass, knive, spoon, fork and colour everything with colour pencil. Then cut out all parts. Paint a sheet with a pattern and colours that fits to your china; your placemat. You may also use coloured paper and glue to decorate your placemat. When your placemat is ready, paste all cut-out parts on it.

Show some drawings in the classroom. How do you recognize the student? What are the most important parts of the face? What lines are important? Every student gets his own drawing. The trace the most important lines in their drawing using a fine black marker. Do not trace details, because after this they have to trace with thick markers. This means: don't trace hairs, just the contours of them. Don't forget facial lines around the mound or nose. When tracing is ready, students take their drawing and a new drawing sheet to a window (or use lightboxes if you have these). Keep the drawing against the window with the white sheet one it and trace the drawing with a pencil. Go back to the table and look carefully at your own portrait. Is it you? Are the lines well? Are the eyes correct?Take a thick black marker and trace the pencil drawing. Paint the portrait with watercolour paint. Choose the colours you like; in popart every colour is possible!
Paint a background or choose a wallpaper background and paste your cut portrait on it. Paste a coloured background behind it for strength.
Children choose a geometric shape and draw this overlapping and in different sizes on their sheet. Then they choose one colour tempera to colour their shapes. Mixing is only allowed with white and black, because the painting has to be monochromatic. When ready, outline everything with black marker.
Blow the balloon. Paste newspaper strips on the half of the ballon. Be sure you have at least eight layers. Let the work dry. Take the balloon uit. Cut the edges and lay this half balloon on the shelf. Use costless things like toilet rolls, bottle caps or polystyrene to shape the face. Fix these parts with newspaper strips and wallpaper paste. The last layer has to be toilet paper or paper towel. Let the work dry again. Paint the portrait with acrylic paint or undiluted tempera. Give the face a body. Sprinkle glitter or confetti in the wet paint.This lesson and photographs were sent to me by Ghislaine Aarts.
