Recycled Art

This is a technique I have been looking forward to trying and the P4s were very willing to help. We used pages from an old book as our background and drew buildings inspired by Paul Klee. The children mixed all these colours and tones from just three watercolours to complete the buildings. The pictures will be displayed in the library corner in the Middle Area. What do you think of this effect?



I love these pieces of art by P6, they are so effective. First, they painted a blended colour wash from sky to sea using the colours of the colour wheel. Then they cut out and scored a city skyline from polystyrene and printed it onto the sky section, using black ink and rollers. The challenge was to reverse this and create a lighter print to represent the reflection. I think the children acheived this, do you?

It may not be a typical Autumn this year, though P5/4 and P5 continued think about the changes during this season through their ART.

Most of the pieces focussed on WIND and RAIN as well as colour changes. We tried to capture MOVEMENT in most of our pieces. Do you think we have achieved this?

I love the new techniques we explored – felt tips and water, laminating leaves and flicking our paint brushes.

Super pieces P5/4 and P5!

Windy Washing Lines!


Last term P6 and P7/6 created a range of weathery artwork. These pieces have been our favourite! Children enjoyed spraying paint and watching the effect. Our little clothes lines, collaged with fabric added movement to our pictures.

Let’s hope they are pegged down tightly! Maybe it’s time to start drying indoors?!
