3 lessons, 90 mins each
1st to 4th classes
- S.P.H.E.: these exercises will help promote self-awareness and will encourage students to recognise their own feelings
- Lesson 1: A selection of mirrors, enough for every child to be able to sit at a desk and look at themselves (these might need to be borrowed, but small mirrors can often be picked up in pound shops), drawing tool made previously (optional, see lesson Drawing Tools → book 1, p.37) Other drawing materials of the child’s choice (Pencils of 2b and upwards and charcoal are good.) One A3 page per child (good quality paper if possible.)
- Lesson 2: Camera, tracing Paper A3 / Large roll of Baking paper Cut into A3 pieces, heavy recycled card pieces (recycled boxes), slightly bigger than A3 Mirrors, pencils and markers, masking tape, scissors, glue sticks.
- Lesson 3: Large A2 sheets of coloured card (Do not use fluorescent/ extremely bright colours, more muted tones/ pastels
will set off the collaged images better.) Glue sticks, scissors for every student . Drawings from the previous class.
