Subject : Art & Design
Topic : Painting and drawing
Keywords : Figurative painting, People, Community, Kevin Sinnott, South Wales valleys, Running Away with the Hairdresser
Notes : In groups, study a painting by Kevin Sinnott - teacher could stick an A5 colour photocopy of a painting in the middle of an A2 sheet of paper and give pupils a list of questions to discuss and then jot the answers down around the outside - questions could focus on what colours the artist used, the subject matter, what's going on in the painting, how it makes them feel, etc. Ask pupils to make sketches of people in their leisure time - playing, chatting, etc. They could then create larger paintings in school using vibrant colours and bolder brushstrokes to show people playing, having fun, etc.
