Key stage 3 pupils learned what Automatism is today in Art. They had to not think for a few minutes while they doodled, which is harder than it sounds. Then we looked at their doodles and discussed what we could see, and how everyone’s perspective is different. Pupils then picked out their images with outlines and colour. We set out without any instruction other than to doodle and it was great for pupils to tell Miss Oliver what they saw and were doing rather than staff directing the pupils.
