Drill Man

I try to give children a variety of paper sizes and shapes to draw and paint on, and today Finn was drawing on a large scale. I encourage him to use the whole page and work freely and boldly, and use his whole body.

This paper was A3 size and I set it up on an easel for him. First he drew on with a brown texta, then washed over the whole page with a edicol dye wash. Indelible markers (like sharpie) are great for children to create strong clear lines.
