Art – Exploring paint brush techniques

Using this painting by David Hockney as inspiration, have a go at using a paintbrush to create different effects. What happens if you use a dry brush? If you have different size paintbrushes at home, see how you can use them to create different effects. What happens if you dab the paintbrush?

Can you answer these questions – What countries does it run through? Where is its source? Where is its mouth? How long is the river? What wildlife lives there? What is the river used for?
