We’ve had a super day at Cannon Hall working with two wonderful artists. We composed our own music and produced a piece of art which we made into a boat using skills in origami. These will be displayed at the museum throughout the summer so make sure you visit to see the finished piece.
This afternoon we have been learning a dance that people might have done 300 years ago!
It is very tricky!
It was another exciting day in Arts Week. Firstly we had the pleasure of working with Jason Wilsher-Mills, who taught us all about using the iPads to create some fabulous pictures. These will be on show on Friday during the showcase event. Next we used our knowledge of mining to create some images of pick axes, miners hats and lamps to produce some block printing patterns. These are looking great so far.
The Dragon of Wantley (Wortley) is England’s most famous dragon legend; in the form of a highly popular somewhat bawdy ballad about a knight, More of More Hall, called upon to slay a dragon preying on children and cattle.
We read the ballad, planned and created our own dragon from the description in the first verse.
We worked together in small groups and have nearly finished each individual dragon.
Come along on Friday at 2:30 and see the completed collages!
What a busy day! We have had another fantastic day today.
This morning we worked on creating our own printing blocks and using these to make a piece of artwork linked to our mining theme.
Then this afternoon we have been working with Jason to create a piece of digital art using I-pads.
What have you enjoyed today? Can you explain to everyone what we had to do for our digital art?
We are really looking forward to seeing you all on Friday, we’ve got so much to share with you!!
Today we have been learning about the mining history in our local area. We created our own printing templates to represent mining.
We have retold the story of the dragon of warncliffe crags and are ready to hunt out dragons! We have lots of activities planned including a photography session with Mrs Hewitt! Exciting stuff 🙂
Taking perspective photographs!
And some fun!
