#Lesson1EarlyArtworks

To promote discussion, children are first given a set of picture cards and encouraged to discuss both the artwork and what they think the artist might be like, based on their work. The artist is then revealed, and children find out about the early life of Sonia Delaunay, including discussing the influence that the work of other artists had on her early paintings. In their independent work, children choose one of Delaunay’s works to analyse in more detail. In the alternative activity, children are challenged to recreate their own portrait in the early style of Sonia Delaunay.
