Have a look at the David Hockney Inspired Patterned Landscape Video. You will need an A4 piece of plain paper and some coloured pens and pencils, a black pen or pencil and a normal pencil. You simply draw a landscape, like rolling hills or seaside and each feature like the hills, the sun, a boat or the sea you cover with a repeating pattern. Have a look at the examples for some ideas. Looking forward to seeing some.

Lockdown Art

Find a large blank piece of paper and any art materials you like to use and have available (pencil crayons, felt tips, pastels, paints etc). Find somewhere quiet to work on your own (if possible) and put on some relaxing music that you have or use the link below. If you are using the link below get it ready before you start by skipping the ads so the music will come straight on. Now silently make a piece of art. Include anything to do with your experience of lockdown. You can include anything you like. It can be sad and happy things.

 When you have finished arrange a time with an adult when they are free for you to tell them about your picture. When it is time to do that tell your adult what you have included in your picture and why.
