Year Three are ‘So Sweet!’

As part of our ‘Express Yourself’ project, the amazing children in year three have been doing just this! Expressing and being free with art!

We have been exploring the world of fruit!

We began by looking  inside a selection of fruits and vegetables to see all the colours and textures.

Using the drawing materials, we explored re-creating the colours, patterns and textures. We revisited the different techniques  such as cross-hatching, dashing and stipling.

       

Using the clay tools, the children experimented with pressing in and scratching the surface of the clay, finding  out what kind of marks they could make. They then decorated the tiles with acrylic paint and left the clay to dry. We are very proud of the finished results! Can you guess the fruits in these beautiful tiles?
