Hidden Paintings in Pokemon

On Monday, we did marbling. We put shaving foam in a tub, added colour and mixed it in to make pictures. We did it inside one day, but ended up doing it outside because it was so messy! (Jayden)

Later in the week, we started our collages. We are going to hide hidden people in them, in rocks, behind windows, trees and leaves. (Charlie) We are going to put our collages in the Undercroft, as part of our exhibition! (Ted).

On Thursday, we went to the city centre to visit a gallery called the Undercroft (Diego). It was like a secret place, hidden behind the market (Savannah). It was like a secret city but with paintings. It was really cool because there were really good paintings (Jayden). The Undercroft was really cool – and the air was cool too! (Ted) In the self portrait room, there was a picture that looked realistic. And there was a mirror, so it looked like we were in the portrait. (Savannah). I was super proud of Pokemon and their amazing behaviour! (Nic).

Pokémon painting, people and playdoh!

We have had a busy 2 weeks!

We used instructions to make playdoh. We had to mix salt and flour together, and creme of tartare to make it more soft. Then we added boiling water with food colouring and something that gives it a smell, We had to stir it and knead it with our hands. If it got too sticky, we added more flour.

We used pipe cleaners and thread to make tiny people. Some of us found it hard, and others found it easy!

We made small pictures with watercolour paints. You have to add water to the paints – if you add a lot of water, you will get more paint. We painted smoothly to keep inside the lines. Then we did big paintings – some of us did it on our own and other worked with a partner. We are loving working as artists, because we are getting good at it!

This week’s art in Pokemon!

This week, we made a house out of clay. We painted them inside and outside to protect it. We used acrylic paint to do that. We had to cut a door out. It was for the Hidden People. By Diego

We did some painting outside. We used crayons, pencils, acrylic paints and water colour paints, felt tips, and oil pastels. By Jayden

Pokemon and the Hidden People!

We have learnt about the Hidden People in Iceland. They are very special to Icelanders, and there are doors on rocks and trees where they live. There have been times where they have needed to move a big rock, but the Icelanders say “no” because that’s where the Hidden People live!

We have made doors for the Hidden People, which we will put in the Forest School area. We painted the doors, and carefully decorated them with acrylic paint. Then we made little foods out of Fimo clay for the Hidden People.

We also planted flowers and seeds to grow in the classroom.
