P/1 are awesome!

comings and goings from the smaller end of the school

That big bluestone building will have a great texture. I just wish I could reach higher.

Anyone feeling creative? Part 1

The Prep One All-Stars have been getting very creative lately.  Last week they learnt how to use a Surrealist art technique called ‘frottage’, which means ‘to rub’ in French.  The All-Stars were madly hunting for interesting textures and surfaces around the school – they then placed pieces of paper over them and rubbed over them with crayon.  The results were really cool.

The All-Stars have also been looking at how illustrators use different techniques in their pictures.  We learnt how to recognise water-colour illustrations and have noticed that Pamela Allen uses it in lots of her illustrations.

Which texture gave you the best result?

What can you do with your collection of textures now?

  1. That sounds like a really fun thing to do. What surfaces did you rub over with crayon?
