Maths and Art Collide.
5 year olds, and Lorna who turned 6 today.
The children made an observational drawing of a ukelele. They drew it again on an A3 piece of paper, using black crayon.
They added colour with wax crayons, covering the paper as thoroughly as they could.
|They sorted this bib tying line up themselves. Smart crew!|
They put on the paint shirts and bibs is such an organised way. I was very impressed. Then they put acrylic paint over the crayon. I asked them to put a contrasting colour over the crayon. For example blue over yellow.
They made pen and coloured pencil drawings of people playing ukelele while they waited for the paint to dry.
After a discussion about what a pattern is, they etched patterns into the paint, exposing the wax crayon colour underneath. They cut out their ukelele leaving a tiny white border so they will stand out on the black paper.
