Glacier Art inspired by Zaria Forman

Updated: Apr 8

I love teaching my class about working with a limited palette and how this can enhance their art beyond belief. However, working with only blue was new territory, even for my Year 6 students.


Felt tips are fine and unicorn rainbows have their place but art is a discipline, like any other subject and to achieve their best, sometimes children need to challenge themselves with restrictions and rules - just like we do in maths, science, prose and poetry.


Zaria Forman's art documents climate change through pastel work and I knew this would appeal to the modern sensibilities and contemporary thinking of the children I work with.


The outcomes of their art prove it: harnessing future-generation views, through art and any other area of creativity, is key to making this planet a better place for all humans, 50 years from now and beyond.
