This week the art club began making armatures, the supports for the clay heads that they will begin to sculpt next week. Newspaper is screwed up and taped to the stand, creating the head shape. When the desired shape was achieved, the children mummified it using masking tape.
This week it was also my job to introduce a group of years 3/4 to the art of repeat patterns. I decided to let them design their own wallpaper. They drew a design on a piece of A4 paper, I sliced it and repositioned the pieces for them using tape. They then photocopied the design 4 times, once all the pieces are lined up and taped, Hey Presto! Your wallpaper is complete. The kids really enjoyed this activity. Will post some photos asap.
