** In response to an email from the class teacher about this project, John Lewis have pledged a donation to support future Reception art projects at the school!! #everychildanartist **
December 2, 2013: A busy day in my local primary school today working with 60 Reception children (age 4-5) to make a 5 metre wide Christmas display. Using the 'Bear and the Hare' John Lewis Christmas TV ad for inspiration, we made a tree scape printing sticks and branches with black paint; cutting and sticking tree shapes, snowflakes and baubles; and drawing a hybrid collection of animals and birds. Great fun and exhausting!
