Term: 2 Year: 2006
Students produced art works for our biennial Art Show 2005. No particular theme was chosen, but a carnival like
atmosphere was created on Opening Night.
A brief history of the making & uses of felt was discussed using 'How to Make Felt" by Anne Belgrave
& 'Felt Work' by Victoria Brown as resources.
We followed the Zart notes on felting, students used wool tops, wool and coloured felt pieces to create a picture.
Embroidery threads, sequins & beads were used to add detail to students work.
We looked at the black & white prints of M.C Echer (29 Master Prints)
Students experimented with different designs of their choice by using pencil on black paper.
The importance of both positive & negative shapes/areas was discussed in detail
Once students had a design they were happy with, they used compasses to scratch the design out using black
'scratch back' cardboard.
After a discussion about family members, students drew all the members of their family using black fine-liners
on white cartridge.
On a separate piece of paper, using a black permanent marker, students drew a self – portrait. Year 5 &
6 helped by cutting out student's portraits.
