Shoes, shoes and more shoes!

Practicing still life with a twist: It was quite tricky drawing shoes from different angles in still life- then the kids had a go at transforming these shoes into large giant ones by adding tiny stick people on/in them- sleeping, climbing, falling off, even sleeping!

This surrealist approach was inspired by the Belgian artist Rene' Magritte, who loved painting everyday objects and then giving them an almost magical twist which makes one stop and think.

Overall, this was great fun and promoted great observatory skills too!
