Creating a mind map is easy and fun, whether you are artistically inclined or not. Think of it as an extended doodle or a daydream in full-blown colour. In this fun and engaging online workshop, children will get to follow art educator Paul Carter on a journey that begins with a piece of fruit found in his fridge.
Mind mapping is an essential skill to learn for any creative child. This video will support children to develop creative, non-linear methods of thinking. Let your mind map express your innermost essence. Often, mind maps are readable and understandable only to the person who created it. And that’s perfectly OK!
Materials required: A3 Paper (no smaller than A4, although it is better to use larger sheets), Pencil, Coloured Markers (Set of Crayons will do either), Pritt Stick or PVA Glue, Variety of arts and crafts material such as crepe paper, cardboard, coloured sugar paper, etc. (this could be anything you have at home from old cereal boxes to wrapping paper)
