After using their imagination to come up with an idea they wanted to portray through a clay sculpture year 4.3 visited prep 4.3 to help add details and extend their thinking to the projects. We have been spending a great deal of time focusing on how using imagination can lead to being creative and unique in the expression of ideas and feelings.
After researching artists who create are through unconventional methods and reading “I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More” by Karen Beaumont the class decided they would use their feet to create a collaborative painting. Almost everyone loved it, as they reflected one student noted “We are kids! We can always be messy when we are creative!”
We are continuing to express ideas and stories through drama. The children made puppets and use the theatre to perform fairly tales and their original stories.
As the children continued to explore famous artists they created Mondrain
inspired abstract art.
