In The Picture: lesson plans
These art sessions have been inspired by three illustrators and by the Quentin Blake Award project and have been designed to put disabled children “in the picture”.
The age range for the session plans is entirely flexible; use the plans as an outline for an art session and adapt them to suit the needs of the children.
All sessions are expected to last for approximately one hour but can be easily adapted to last a longer or shorter time.
They are generally best suited to groups of about 10 children but more can be included, depending on the group leader.
Materials needed include boards, paper, pencils, pens, coloured pencils, collage, paint, brushes, sponges or charcoal (a wide range of both media and methods of application to suit the differing needs of the participants).
- Session 1: playground
- For Session 2: inclusive environment and Session 3: group picture, you will need to have access to images in the In The Picture image bank
- For Session 4: what if? a selection of children’s picture books should be available for the children to look at
Try to allow 10 to 15 minutes at the end of the session to look at the group’s pictures and allow the children to make comments and feed back.
Sporting Champions aims to inspire and motivate young people to participate in sport.
In The Picture would like to thank Di Lorriman for developing and sharing these art session plans.
