Field of Poppies | Anzac Day Art Activity


In this Anzac Day inspired art activity students will explore the symbolism of Poppies and their relationship to war by creating a Field of Poppies. Students will develop techniques in printing by using a sponge to create marks that resemble poppies. Students can experiment with the way they apply the ink from the sponge to the paper by dabbing, twisting and trying different amounts of pressure, as well as they amount of water which they use. Students will then work over their printed shapes with pens and markers to add details & emphasise the shapes of the flowers.
