my name is…

More about Butterfly Hill…


How to start a class with no materials bar paper and pencil and some kids who don’t always speak such good English?…first thing i always do is “my name is…” I get the kids to draw their names and to customise them. Limiting materials to just pencil forces them to get really creative with the content. Every child tackles it a different way and it’s a really good way to asses who is keen and who is not. Check out the variety of response below:

Raja – one of my photography students from last year, a great artist and a lovely person

Ranga – from computer drawing class, see here for some of his work from last year.

Balaji – also from last year…pretty sure he has some kind of attention deficit disorder, but he seems better this year…anyway, the boy knows how to draw…
