August Antics - Artful Animals

Wednesday, August 13th 2014

Eleven children (and their parents) enjoyed a morning exploring the lives of our native nocturnal animals through arts and crafts activities.

We spent time crafting some beautiful prints of Hedgehogs and Badgers using potato stamps, adding texture using brushes, stamps and sponges.

Prints using jelly plates were also made, a textured background was created using rollers and acrylic paint before aspects of this were developed with additional colours, shapes and textures using a variety of different tools. Children were also able to dissect owl pellets, exploring the diets of these birds by identifying the contents.

The final activity designing and modelling a hedgehog from clay, these will now be fired and glazed before being put on display.

Thank you to Glennis who organised and provided the materials for these activities. The morning was enjoyed by all who took part and the artwork produced was fantastic. This will soon be on display in the classroom for all to enjoy.
