Numbers inspired by Jasper Johns

Jasper Johns created art from everyday things like numbers, flags and maps. Kids are particularly familiar with numbers and from this confident position they can experiment with overlapping and exploring the qualities of the medium they are using. In this lesson children used soft pastels, many for the first time.

The kids used Micador soft pastels in boxes of 48 colours. They were delighted with the range of colours and many excitedly experimented with the ones that appealed most. The outcomes were vibrant reflecting children's developmental ages and understandings.
