This week we have been interested in how children process simple shapes and recognise them as features. For example using a triangle as a roof or using circles as faces or eyes. This focus is based around using loose parts and open ended materials which encourage the children’s imagination and thinking skills.
Using artist images and collaged pieces we have discussed with the children about everything that makes up a face. It is amazing how children can relate to very minimalistic representation and not worry about the missing detail as maybe an adult would.
