Snowflake Art on Friday

Hard at work making the snowflakes!

This has been a really hectic week with all the practices going on for our Christmas school shows. Nevertheless, as we are an art loving class, we still managed to fit in some this week.

We made these pictures by cutting out snowflakes from white paper and sticking them on to black card. We then used our oil pastels to draw snowflake shapes in the negative space. We then added some sparkly details with glitter glue. Right now we are waiting for the glue to dry but we think they will make a fantastic display next week.

All finished!

Firework Art on Friday

As you may have noticed from previous posts, we always do an art lesson on Friday afternoons, before our Golden Time.

This week we are working on a class art project. We used a large sheet of black paper and took it in turns to throw kitchen roll soaked in fluorescent paint at it. The paint “splatted out” to look like fireworks. It is a work in progress as we will have to finish it next week, once the kitchen roll “splats” have dried.

We thought you might like to have a look at the fun we had making it in the meantime!

Mixing the paint.
To be finished next week ...........

Getting arty!

We finished off our landscape pictures complete with sheep this week.   In our lesson, we learned that the line where the land meets the sky is called the horizon and we also talked about perspective.

 We hope that the parents who came along on Wednesday evening enjoyed looking at them.
