Term 4 Week 5

Maroon & Turquoise Class

This week, our reception, year 1 and year 2 artists learned how to create prints of fish using polystyrene tiles. We drew different patterns into the surface of the polystyrene using pencils. We rolled block printing ink on to our fish, then pressed them down onto paper. We got some lovely results!


Amber, Magenta & Violet Class

Our year 3 and 4 artists printed from their Jasper Johns inspired printing plates which we made last week. We did a few practise prints before creating our final prints onto the colourful backgrounds we’d prepared.


Jade & Emerald Class

Our year 5 and 6 artists finished off printing from their etched CDs. We then made polystyrene prints of different beetles and moths. This week we printed the first layer- next week, we’ll work into our polystyrene tiles some more and print a second layer over the top to create a reduction block print.
