After School Clubs
Multi Sports Club Wednesdays Year 5 & 6
Roller skating club
This week children were busy carrying out their #Christmas themed #plans with their request to experiment with #printing techniques. For this we used #polystyrene #tiles to create #seasonal designs to produce #relief #prints using a limited #colour palette and #inkrollers, similar to the ever popular #linoprinting process.
Again, some beautiful results. Amazing to see what can be achieved in less than an hour with 7 to 10 year olds who have never done this before!
This week children were very busy turning their #Christmas themed #illustrations into #professional looking #greetingcards to give to #family and #friends. We also experimented with bright coloured #inks on #watercolour paper adding #saltcyrstals to give them a crunchy wintry texture. #handmadeby
This week children followed colourful plans to create their #Christmas #craft options. Today was the start of #Christmascard designs using #charcoal #watercolours and splattered #ink with the theme of wintry scenes.
Last half term was all about #originsofart exploring #Egyptians #Romans #greeks finishing with extremely colourful #terracotta #clay #tiles.
Wk6 |THEME: Origins of Art | Clay Tiles | Romans & Greeks
Following on from last 2 weeks experiments with surface patterns on #Greek #Roman pottery and mosaics.
This week we have used #terracotta #clay to make themed tiles following our designs from the past 2 weeks. Next week we shall be painting theme in a classic colour scheme.
THEME: Origins of Art | Surface Patterns | Romans & Greeks - This week we have explored the surface patterns that appear on #Greek #Roman pottery. The children created designs for tiles using repeat motifs for borders and historical scenes for storytelling as the main design, using pencil, water colour & oil pastels. These designs will later become clay tiles using their designs over the next few weeks.
THEME: Origins of Art | Early Writing | Egyptian Hieroglyphics - Children explored early forms of written language with #Egyptian #hieroglyphics. They used the symbols to spell out their name and then explored simple story telling with familiar symbols, using pencil & pastel crayons in earthy colours applying limited colour like the Egyptians.
Today was learning about trees and creating them in Black in White, using soft pencils, graphite, charcoal and chalk...with a bit of pastel for good measure.
THEME: Origins of Art | Visual Language - Children discussed and explored the origins of art and early forms of visual communication. They used gritty pastels to create the texture of cave walls, then used charcoal & oil pastels to create signature hand prints filled with symbols to tell stories about the lives of prehistoric cave people. #parietalart #paleolithicart #neanderthalart
At Art Club September 2019 the focus was 'Getting2KnowU'. Children were drawing themselves, adding detail with hair, nose, eyes, mouth, ears, arms legs, hands, clothes, glasses etc. Exploring SHAPES - square, triangle, circle, stars, pentagon.
