Mission Complete

What a busy week! As mentioned in my previous blog I have been working with a local school as part of their health awareness Art Week. Our mission was to complete 8 sculptures in the style of artist Niki De Saint Phalle. The children chose to make 2 figures, a heart, a pair of lungs, feet, a head (love the spiky hair), legs and arms. As you can see from the picture below we completed our bright and brilliant sculptures in the glorious sunshine on Wednesday.
 As part of the week the children learnt new methods of making sculpture, and got to work as a team, develop their painting skills and have a lot of fun. This project provided a great opportunity for the school to work slightly off curriculum for a week and embrace their creativity. The children led the project from start to finish working on problem solving, confidence, material selection, decoration and use of colour.
