Drawing from Our constructions – A Surreal Landscape

Paintings from Timber Constructions that young children have previously made. The Constructions are placed as a group on their tables to draw from and to paint from.

This gives the students opportunity to look at their work in a different way, to think originally and to create unique images based on their own 3D creation
