Artful Owls!

Wednesday, April 9th 2014

Today saw the first of our Easter holiday activity mornings, Artful Owls, an artistic investigation into owls and their fascinating lifecycles. This event was a fantastic success with at times, over forty people in the classroom participating in the five different activities on offer.

Children enjoyed making and decorating their own owl inspired biscuits which where enjoyed later on in the morning with a cup of juice.

Tiles were cut, designed and shaped out of clay, which will be fired and glazed before all being mounted in a frame and put up on display.

Prints were made using potatoes, sponges and jelly plates. The textures, shapes and colours brilliantly captured the essence of an owl! Wax resistant drawings were also made, some focusing on single feathers. Finally, the children (and adults) were able to dissect owl pellets to find out more about the diets and lives of these beautiful nocturnal creatures.

All of the artwork has now been mounted and is now on display in the classroom for visitors to admire and enjoy! Well done everyone!

Thank you to everyone who helped out this morning, but we must also say a special thank you to Glennis who has put so much time into organising this event and provided so many of the materials used this morning.
