This week in Art, Foundation students completed their ‘Funky Fish’ collage. This activity used lots of new skills such as: creating lines and patterns, applying different materials to their work, textured rubbings and learning to cut out shapes carefully.
Firstly, to create the body of the fish, students worked in pairs to outline their feet onto paper. We had a prior discussion and created class anchor chart all about lines. Using this knowledge, students used oil pastels to decorate their fish with a variety of lines and patterns. The final steps was to make a lovely sea background. We used wax crayon and create some textured rubbings onto concrete then created a wax resist using blue food dye.
Foundation students are very excited to take their first official art work home! Well done on completing your first term in Art.
Thank you to Zart Art’s Back to Basics Professional Development day for this excellent lesson idea.
