Mark making is the process of discovering that you can convey many different meanings with a very wide array of lines, patterns, colours and symbols. Practising with charcoal enables children’s skills to become refined, to the point where they can create amazingly detailed and delicate expressions of imagination, observation, aspiration and wonder.
