Year 1 students were inspired by the work of Patrick Heron when drawing this map of their school. We looked at the work of Heron in the art room and children loved the bold colours, shapes and textures in his work. They thought some of his paintings looked like maps which gave us the idea to make our own map of our school. The students really enjoyed working on a large scale together, adding more details each time they returned to the art room. It was a wonderful way for students to become more familiar with their new school setting.
