We have been making pieces of art that will be offered to parents, with the possibility of making them into calendars, note books or cars. It is a fundraiser. The art is to be A4, landscape, no collage or glitter etc. I have been surprised at how restricting the limitations have been.
I thank Mrs Knight for providing this idea, dolvinartknight.blogspot.com.au
Today we made abstract art based around the strong lines and shapes of a bicycle. We focussed on the negative spaces that are created.
I gave the children 4 outlines of 4 different bikes. They were asked to crop and draw part of the bike. I asked them to be aware of the negative spaces.
They drew them onto card using marker pens, then treated each negative space with a different colour.
