Year 4 have been learning about Diwali in our RE lessons. In art we looked at some Rangoli patterns and worked in teams to create giant Rangoli patterns on the playground.
We then combined our knowledge of Rangoli patterns with our research into the artist Veronika Richterova who creates her work out of plastic bottles. She uses heat to twist, turn and cut up the plastic bottles and to give them natural forms. We decorated plastic bottles with our own Rangoli patterns and then cut some of them up to make spiral shapes and used some to look like Diwali lanterns.
We then put all of our artwork together to make this huge installation which is on display in our art studio!
