We got some things from nature like fircones and seed head sand we drew them with different things like ink and sticks, printing, oil pastels and white pens. My favourite bit was making a monoprint.
Today we have been looking at maps and we are being inspired by them . We looked at pictures by Joyce Kozloff. She makes maps out of different materials including old maps, old pictures, portraits of people and paint. We used scrap paper and paint to make a collage . I enjoyed when we were painting because I like the colours! We have been learning about maps in geography. We are going to finish these next week so tune in next time!!
Today we were printing Islamic motifs and we used plasticise to make a shape and dip it into the inky sponge. Then we put it on the paper. It was a lot of fun. After we done experimenting we chose our best design and printed it on coloured paper. At the end it turned out good.

Jade Class had lots of fun with Miss Thompson creating stick art!
We started with a stick hunt…
In the warmth of our class room we used our fine motor skills to wrap colored wool around the twigs, making the letter of our first name…
Year 2 had an amazing Arts week! We did lots of exciting activities like making planets, creating pom pom aliens and even designing our very own space ships! We also developed our dancing, acting and photography skills in some fantastic workshops!

We looked at different artists and made paintings like them
