Ships Ahoy!

Year 4 have had lots of fun creating sea themed artwork. First, we used watercolours to create a seascape background. We thought about how we could blend the colours to create different shades of blue for the sea and the sky. After that, we used collage to add boats to our pictures. We used a number of different materials to build the different parts of the boat, such as the sails, the mast and the boat itself. Finally, we made foam paint by mixing shaving foam, glue and glitter together. We used the foam paint to add texture to the picture and to create the look of sea foam as the waves roll and crash. The finished pieces looked fantastic and the children should be really proud of the artwork they have produced.
