Term: 3 Year: 2008
Work in this unit was based on Eric Carle type collage.
The students folded a piece of A2 Cartridge Paper into six sections and were encouraged to experiment freely with different
ways of applying paint using a variety of mark making objects (such as match sticks, bottle tops, corks, textured stamps
Primary and secondary colour paints were poured into foam trays and on to sponges to allow for stamping and dipping
of the objects. Once the work was dry, students used the patterned and textured papers as the sails on some sort of sailing
boat design as well as an assortment of other papers and mixed media thrown in as well.
