Welcome back to the Studio and hello to all our new children. We have spent the last week exploring all the Studio room has to offer. The children have been taking part in a wide variety of expressive art activities and exploring their creative sides.
Today we have been discussing other ways we could create non conventional art. We have previously discussed the work of Henri Matisse who used scissors to create his art work. Today we used nature paint brushes to create ours.
We spoke about the different natural objects we collected and had fun exploring what prints, patterns and designs we could create by using them.
We printed, stamped and spread the paint using the different natural objects to ignite our creative spark.
We discussed what colours to use and decided to use natural colours that we would find outside in natures colour wheel. Browns, yellows, greens etc. We talked about what these colours represent in the world.
It was lovely to see the end result of the process and the wonderful creating thinking our children shared. Our children were very engaged in this learning experience, sharing their expressive thoughts while developing their creative design skills and linking real word objects to arts.
Can you find things in the local area to create art as well?
