Art Club Diary

The last of our four weeks about the changing seasonal landscape around the village. This week we extended the activity of drawing and layering winter branches. Each child worked drawing into a white box creating a background of bare branches. I was pleased to see them experimenting with some different types of mark making after last week. They then used 3d materials to construct a forest and perhaps some passing wildlife. I enjoyed some of the conversations that cropped up around the activity such as local horses being spooked by starling murmurations and a discussion over the use of the word ‘sapling’.

At the end of the session the children used torches to light their forests and took the photos below.
