Here are some of our projects ...... Enjoy!

Positive and Negative Collage

This activity was a bit of a jigsaw to create!  We started off by making single cut outs on each side of a rectangle but then quickly moved on to doubles. These are where you cut out a piece from inside the first cut out. It is quite fiddly but the results were impressive. 

Oil Pastel Dragon Eyes

As a group we decided we wanted to explore the medium of oil pastels. Searching around, we found some amazing images of dragon eyes which we wanted to have a go at. Here are some of our creations so far.

Exploding Dots

We have been 'taking a dot for a walk', exploring adding paint to paper with a range of implements e.g. feathers, sticks, string cotton buds, fingers as well as brushes. Once dry we began to add decoration in pen. 

Autumn Trees

We looked at the trees outside turning autumnal and Gustav Klimt's Birch trees (as well as other artists). We created our own versions using a water-colour wash background and acrylic trunks. We had fun splattering on the different colour leaves.

Colour Wheel Flowers

We explored the primary and secondary colour wheel, using it as our background for a concentric circle flower design. To make the flowers we used Posca Pens (We love them!) and sharpies to add the final pattern.

Animal Face Collage

To create these amazing faces we first splattered paint, ink and crayoned large pieces of paper which we then ripped into strips. (This did get rather messy!) These were glued onto card in a star burst design. On to this we added oil pastel eyes, a nose then inked on fur or feathers. The eyes have a glint to them because I painted a layer of resin over them. They look absolutely fantastic.  

Rag Decorations

It was coming up to Christmas and I saw lovely rag decorations in a shop window. We had a go at creating our own versions in Art Club by tying strips of fabric to sticks. They came out very well!
