Transient Art

This week the children in the Home Room have been creating their own fabulous pictures with transient art.

‘Transient art is simply moveable art’. The children are getting creative using loose parts such as stones, shells, buttons etc, to create pictures using their imagination.

Transient art allows children to make a picture 100 different ways, rather than having 1 end product when gluing and sticking.

The children added blue playdough to their pictures and pretended they were at the seaside and the playdough was the sea.

“Look at the waves in the sea, they are very big”

They even made 3D pictures. “Look the bird is sticking out of the picture”

This experience can be explored indoors and outdoors and can often lead from collecting sticks, stones, leaves etc. when out a local walk.

The children had lots of fun creating their own pictures, why dont you have a turn at home, when at the park or out a walk?

Windy day in the garden!!

Today the children have been very busy in the garden. We had some lovely red rose petals to add to our shells, acorns and other natural resources! The children got very involved in some transient art activity. They were very imaginative with some children creating lovely patterns.


“I am making a circle!”

”I made my mummy with red eyes!”

The children were very excited to get a yummy snack of vegetable pakora cooked by Val on the fire! This is a big favourite at Cartmill and the children enjoyed sitting at a distance watching it cook!

Some children noticed a kite flying outside the garden! Since it was so windy the kite was really ‘dancing’ in the sky. The children wanted to make their own kites to fly in the garden so that is what we did!

We designed our own kites and cut them out! We stuck ribbon to the back and thanks to the big wind we had great fun flying them in the garden!

“Mine is super fast!”

“My kite can touch the sky!”

What creative children we have at Cartmill!
