FIRST WORKSHOP
1/7/16

Libby, Asha, Morgan, Liv and Ebony visited the children's centre for the first workshop at 9:00am. The group didn't arrive early enough to be set up by the time the children arrived so we took this into consideration for the next time.

ACTIVITY 1

They worked with a group of 4 children so it'd be easy to control. We made sure all the kids had aprons on/ had rolled up their sleeves before we brought out some shapes we had cut out of card earlier as well as red, blue and yellow paints. The task was to put the shapes on paper and use them as a stencil. The children had to trace around them with sponges dipped in paint, remove the shape and see the space left by the shape. They were enthusiastic about this activity and obviously enjoy using paint. However, the task was messy and the paint got everywhere.

ACTIVITY 2

Our second activity was mixing colours. We'd put 2 different coloured blobs of paint in a bag and the children could all squish the bag, mixing up the colours. This task wasn't messy at all and the children were very engaged.

The children were asked questions throughout the workshop about what colours and shapes they were using or mixing.

THIRD WORKSHOP

We did the mixing colours in a bag activity again first as the kids enjoyed it so much the first time. Then we did a new activity where we made a colour wheel and first asked the children about the colours and then told them to collect objects and toys of each colour to bring back and place on each colour section. The children thoroughly enjoyed this task and brought back more objects than we needed. 

SECOND WORKSHOP
12/7/16

Liv, Asha and I did the second workshop at the Selhurst Children's Centre. We took inspiration from the 1st task done last time and produced stencils with the shape cut out of them instead so the kids could paint the shapes onto the paper. Again we asked the children questions about colours and shapes.

Libby and Julia emailed the Children's Centre to arrange a meeting with a member of staff (below) to find out more about the centre, how they run it and the activities the children already participate in.

QUESTIONS TO ASK IN MEETING

• What age group are we working with?
• How much art do they do?
• What kind of art have they done?

VISITS

Ebony made the notes attached from the second visit to the nursery.

Our group visited the nursery in groups of 5 for 2 hours each to get some experience with the children and observe how they play and interact with each other etc. The staff were very friendly and made us all feel very welcome and comfortable.
We were told some rules for when we were introduced to the children:
- No smoking around the children
- No picking up the children
- Don't take a cold to the toilet, notify a member of staff
- No bad language/language a 4 year old shouldn't be familiar with
- Don't group up because it could be intimidating for the children.
