Picnic Art

Discussion inspired by art depicting picnics – an Activity for Individuals

Method /

  • Lay out the three picnic inspired images to look at - it helps if you present images one per page, and if you each have a copy of each different image.
  • Begin by having a general look at the images - encourage your partner to pick up images and look at them in more detail.
  • Once you have had time to have a relaxed look at the images ask your partner if they can pick which is their favourite image.

    When they have chosen you could ask:

  • What image have they chosen?
  • What can they see in the picture?
  • Why did they choose that image? What do they like about it?
  • How would you both describe the image?
  • If you had to describe the image with a single word what word would you use?

You could also:

  • Pick one of the images and tell the story of what is happening in the image.
  • Who can you see?
  • Where are they?
  • What are they doing?
  • Why are they doing it?
  • How do they feel about being there?
  • As you respond to the questions write down everything that you say to create a simple piece of creative writing.
  • Finish by reading back the writing that you have created, and asking your partner if they can come up with a title for it.
What you will need /
  • Printed picnic themed images
  • A pen and paper
