5 WAYS WITH… DRAMATIC TENSION

5 ways with… is a series that gives you a whole week of ideas with one resource! This time we’re focusing on how to create dramatic tension.

ADVENTURE WALKS

Go outside… on a mission! Is there someone who needs help? Or something you need to find? It can sparked by “clues” in your surroundings, based off of their favourite toys/stories, or whatever randomly pops into someone’s head.

MINI WORLDS

With a little imagination, cracks in pavements, plants or rocks become their own miniature worlds. Slow down, find an interesting spot, then ask some “I wonder…” questions: I wonder who could live there? I wonder what they need?

5 WAYS WITH… CHALK

SEED BOMB TACOS

Air drying clay filled with soil and seeds makes great seed bombs. Layer, then fold over to make a “taco”. Use papier-mâché (or eco-friendly paste and tissue paper) to make colourful art between slabs, in cracks in walls or in trees.

ACTION PAINTING

Combine visual art with moving your whole body! Rolls of paper taped together, tarpaulins or old bedsheets can make a large “canvas” – then throw, blow, clap or sprinkle powder paint (or coloured cornflour) as you dance, twirl, jump etc.

LIGHT PAINTING

Remember writing your name in the air with a sparkler? Same idea! Download a light painting app for your phone (or set a digital SLR camera to have a long exposure) then play around with torches, glow sticks – whatever you have.
