His works are interesting because his subjects are comic-strip characters that walk along the street of big cities, like New York. He started his activity when he was about 15 years old, but since he was a child he has always had the passion for his art even if he hadn't the courage to show it.

Carissa uses all kinds of patterns and shapes on her work to create effect. Recently, she came to work with our older pupils and asked them ‘how would Llandudno look in the future?’. Our pupils came up with excellent ideas and Carissa collaborated these together and came up with an extremely effective piece of art (see image below). On this occasion, she used bright, vivid colours as she was working with children.

Step 1 Talk about animals living in jungle and savannah. What animals do you know? Look at the Junglepictures by Hans Scherfig. Are they realistic? Why/not? Talk about naivism. What is typical for pictures painted in naïve style? Talk about colours and composition: foreground, middleground and background. Step 2 Make scetches of animals. Ask the pupils to bring along some toy-animals for inspiration. Step 3 Draw the different elements on paper (size A4 or A3). Place the animal/s, trees, grass, bushes etc. Step 4 Paint the picture. We have used water colours but you can also use aquacolour pencils. Colour the whole paper—no white spots. Step 5 When the painting is dry, draw the lines with black filt pen. Step 6 Place the paintings on thin, black paper or add black frames and display the pictures. Alternatively, you could draw and colour the animals on carboard and cut them out. Paint the background on a separate paper and glue the animals on the background. This will give your pictures a nice 3D-effect. You could also paint together a giant jungle/savannah on a paper on the wall and place the animals there.

In five words: Colourful, experimental, maximum price artwork.

Gerhard Richter – Teaching Idea To start the project, show your class Gerhard Richter’s artwork ,4900 colours’ and let your students share their thoughts and feelings.

Explain your students that Gerard Richter choose the colours positions by chance. Afterwards, let your class make their own artwork out of colour charts by letting them pick colour charts out of a box with closed eyes and just putting them next to each other on the floor. (Advice: Take a trip to a hardware store, there you can get colour charts for free!)

Additionally, working with Gerhard Richter’s artwork offers a great opportunity to talk with your class about colours in general and the colour circle.

Let your students get active and paint a square in their favourite colour using water colours. This offers a good opportunity to talk about primary colours and how to blend colours. After the coloured squares dried, let your students cut them out and gather the class again. Now repeat the blind picking process:

Now, you have a great class artwork, Gerhard Richter style!
