- White sheet of paper (A3) size
- Pencil, colour pencils, crayons, watercolour, colours….
- The facilitator introduces the participants with the subject (introduction of new topic, revision of older topics, knowledge testing, group dynamics, etc…).
- Participants can later express their feelings about the latter discussed topic (either at the beginning or end of the class).
- Participants use one half of the paper sheet to draw/paint how they feel. They can also express their knowledge using lines, dots, colours or shapes. On the other half of the sheet, they draw a mind map and use words to describe their artwork, also including their feelings, knowledge, and interests about the following topic.
- At the end of the activity, participants should show their work to the others and explain their work. The facilitator should assist with supplementary questions if needed.
- The facilitator can use this activity in any art technique and art field (drawing, painting, sculpturing, printmaking). The facilitator can use optional sizes of paper sheets as material.
- Artwork can be created step by step, for example every school hour something is added (considering knowledge, students’ feelings…).
- Activity can be adjusted for all age groups and fields.
