• Is Seeing Believing? Wondermind Learning Resource

    By Abigail Christenson -

  • 7

We went to Hope Primary, St Aloysius Catholic Primary and Westvale Primary schools in Knowsley, near Liverpool. The children we met had fun playing visual perception games, talking about wonder and imagination, and they drew pictures of themselves without looking. They covered their paper and hands with their jumpers, and the results were amazing. You could try this at home and in the classroom!

Classroom & Gallery Resources

Artist educator Antony Hall has created these resources that include the fantastic experiments in the video above, and a different pack for using in the gallery. We’d love to hear about any results you find, so please leave us a comment!

  1. I like drawing because you can experiment and try new things.

  2. I tried this myself and I was very pleased with my results. I found it suprisingly easy because I pictured my face in my head and then drew it, this made it very easy to find the different parts of my face.

  3. How long is the exibition on for? I plan to visit later in the year. We use outdoor natural spaces for learning and well being with people all ages and are always on the look out for new ideas.
    LOVE THIS! Thanks
