11 May Screaming at the Dentist
In this lesson you are going to briefly look at the work of the Expressionist artist, Edvard Munch. It can be a stand alone lesson or a fun art activity to do alongside reading the book “Demon Dentist” by David Walliams.
I first saw this art lesson here when I was looking for inspiration during lockdown. My Year 4’s were reading the “Demon Dentist” at the time and anyone who has read the book knows that it is NOT the type of dentist one would like to go to! To express how the children might feel visiting such a dentist we looked at work of Munch and how he used colour and line to express emotions. Have a look at the video below to find out what to do. You can also see the step by step drawings on the original website here.
