We have a new writing game here at Chelsea Community Hospital School and it starts with art – by making just a few marks. Look at the marks below – simple black marks on paper. We have turned it so you see it in different ways – just pick one to add marks to and write about.

We would like you to have a look at these marks and say what you can see. Celeste has started us off below – she has added marks in another colour pen to show what she has seen and written a line to go with it. Either put a few words, or (ideally), extend your idea in 10 words including a verb (see examples below). Please start with ‘That’s obviously…’

The more creative the better! Please take time choosing your words carefully.
