Maroon, Amber & Turquoise Class
This week our reception, year 1 and year 2 artists learnt some clay modelling techniques! We practised rolling spheres and cylinders, then had a go at pinch pots and coil pots. We learnt how to join two pieces of clay together successfully, and how to apply water to avoid the clay cracking. We then used some of these skills to create a tortoise!
Magenta & Violet Class
Our year 3 and 4 artists finished off their tissue paper lanterns this week! We were then challenged to create an abstract sculpture using only lolly sticks and glue guns. We made some amazing creations!
Our year 5 and 6 artists were also busy with glue guns this week! Their challenge was to create a sculpture using only glue guns and crayons. The end results were really effective! We then practised some techniques for working with clay.
