Under the Sea
Week 6: For the last week of this block, we rounded up the activities going back to some of the books we had spent time looking at, at the start of the workshop block. Everyone chose an excerpt from one of the books to illustrate – each one had lovely descriptive words of something sea related. Starting off with the same paper we made our sea creatures with, (made in week 2) we ‘muted’ some of the colours and patterns by sponging and stenciling white paint onto the surface. Once this had dried the children got to work making lovely hand drawn illustrations, some choosing to use collage to embellish their illustrations further. To complete the artworks, the children selected some of the words from their chosen excerpt and added these. Beautiful combination of techniques, marks and drawings.
