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.
