This activity looks at the use of geometric shapes in pictures. It begins by showing an abstract shape picture of some boats on the water. Parts of the picture are then looked at in more detail and the shapes used to create the objects are discussed.

Pupils then have the opportunity to make their own shape picture on the board, with a variety of tools and colours. Practical activities are then suggested for the pupils, including a comparison of their shape picture to a picture of some boats by a Welsh artist.
