Dive into the vibrant world of art with your eager young artists using our fantastically fun KS2 Exploring Art Materials & Techniques! Perfect for both the classroom and the cozy learning nook at home, our lesson plans and worksheets are designed to tick all the boxes of the English National Curriculum, all while keeping the giggles going and creativity flowing.

First up, let's get our hands a little messy and our imaginations running wild with Tissue Paper Abstract Artwork. Who knew tearing, scrunching, and layering could create such masterpieces? It's not just about the end result; it's the squishy, squashy journey there that counts! Then, why not turn the world on its head with Playing with Perspectives? This activity is a real eye-opener—literally! It's all about seeing the world from different angles, challenging perceptions, and understanding that there’s no single way to view the world around us.

Don’t stop there! Our Playing with Art Materials and Playing with Colour sessions encourage kids to mix, match, and marvel at the endless possibilities that simple art supplies can offer. From blending colours to discovering what happens when different materials meet, it's a sensory playground. And let's not forget the magic of light and dark with Exploring Shading. This is where your students or children can learn the subtle art of bringing their creations to life by understanding how shadows work.

So, grab these lesson plans and let’s make learning an adventure that's as colourful as a rainbow after a spring shower. Who says meeting curriculum standards can't be a blast? With these activities, you’ll not only spark a love for art but also encourage critical thinking, problem-solving, and a whole lot of joyous exploration. Let the creativity begin!
