Mindful Mondays

Every Monday at Merry Hill we begin our week with a Mindful Monday art lesson. The aim for the children is to begin the week in a positive and creative way. This week in Year 2 we have been looking at the artist Clarice Cliff and her colourful art work.

We have studied the artist and discussed in depth what we have noticed about her work. We particularly liked the artists use of bright colours and shapes she used to create her designs. Then, we used her artwork to create our own Clarice Cliff inspired designs and annotated our work identifying the features.

How to help at home: 

  • Ask your child if they remember who Clarice Cliff is and if they can draw you a piece that looks like her artwork.
  • Do you know of an artist that you would like to share with your child? Ask them to identify the key characteristics of this artist’s work. Can they create their own inspired artwork?
