Indigo class have started working towards their Bronze Arts Award! This is an accredited award endorsed by Trinity College, London, and is the equivalent of a D-G grade GCSE. The Bronze award is spit into four sections, the first of which involves having a go at different kinds of art. We’ll be trying out some sculpture projects over the course of the half term, and the students will be keeping a record in their log books.
This week, we talked through the arts logs to familiarise ourselves with the structure of the award. We then worked on creating a lantern using tissue paper. We layered the tissue paper up using plenty of PVA glue, adding wires to act as feet once the lanterns are dry. We also tried out some techniques to manipulate a cardboard cylinder, using scissors to add interesting details. We’ll use similar techniques on our lanterns.
