Lower KS2 Art Club

This term art club were challenged to create a masterpiece where they had to work as a team and each child had to do a painting that would join together to make a final piece.

We looked at some art and discussed the things that we would need to do to create our own bird painting. We decided that the branches would need to join together on each canvas and that the colours would need to blend nicely together in the background. We each did a design and then the teachers voted on their favourite which we decided to recreate. We investigated different colours and decided that complementary colours would work well to make the birds stand out.

Then the fun began! We each had to paint our canvas, making sure that the colours in the background were the same as any canvas that would go next to it, above it or under it! Mrs Clarkson was very impressed how we managed this as each person had to keep checking with the children whose work would be joined onto ours to make sure that the colours matched.

When we had finished we put all the canvases together and were delighted with our finished work! It’s now on display in our main corridor so you can pop in and see it!

Felting Club Term 6

Year 3 felting club have been learning all about how to turn Merino wool fibres into works of art by using the wet felting method. So far they have chosen a photograph from the internet, used the fibres to create their picture and then rubbed them repeatedly with soap to get the fibres sticking together. Next week, the REAL hard work will start when they have to roll their work up repeatedly to shrink it and finish the process of getting the fibres stuck together! Get your muscles ready, Team Felting Club!

Felting Club Update:

Congratulations to all of the children in felting club who have now completed their work. They talked to everyone in assembly about the felting process and showed the school their work. Everyone was very impressed and we look forward to doing more felting next academic year.
