This week each class experimented with colour and texture using a range of media!
Maroon, Amber & Turquoise Class
Our reception, year 1 and year 2 artists experimented with wax resist techniques. We collected different textures by creating rubbings of various surfaces using oil pastels, and then added Brusho paint. We also drew ‘secret pictures’ using candles- it was tricky because we couldn’t see what we were drawing, but once we brushed paint over the paper our drawings appeared!
Magenta & Violet Class
Our year 3 and 4 artists used a wide range of drawing media to depict feathers in different ways. We got some beautiful results! We are going to use this work as collage material for next week’s project, which will be a combination of drawing and sculpture.
Our year 5 and 6 artists also produced some wonderful feather studies. We’ll be making some very bright and colourful bird sculptures next week!
