WizzKid is good at many things but at art he is bad, an' I mean really bad!!This last week he was asked to draw a poster informing people what to do in the event of a natural disaster. He chose to do it on Tsunamis.He came walking to the car with a very worried look upon his mug.
"Mom, I don't know what I'm gonna do. I have to draw a poster and I don't think I can do it!"
As we drove home from school I reassured him that I'd show him how to create a poster that required very little drawing at all. We spoke about the 3 elements(wave, buildings, hills) that were needed in the poster, and he assigned the colours.
WizzKidd cut out the coloured card,outlined the shapes in black felt pen and drew rectangular windows on the buildings. I wrote the heading, and he inked it in. He loved the bold colours and I think the simple message works well.
Another project complete...... whew!
