The children using the Art and Design area have been looking at combining different materials to create a piece of art. We selected a variety of loose parts and the children chose which ones they wanted to use and created their own artwork in the frames.
We discussed how we can re-use the materials to make other things too!
It all started this week when we found an acorn. We talked about the acorn and where it had come from and we used our tree identification guide to help us. We found out it was an Oak tree and there was one nearby.
The children then made beautiful woodland transient art.
We took some tools with us to the forest on Wednesday and we made wooden objects. We then thought about if they could float or if they would sink.
We decorated them too.
“It’s a photo frame!”
We tested the objects out on the river.
The Thursday group was cancelled due to the weather but we will be back next week hopefully if the weather improves.
