Here is what we came up with:
The birthday party was a blast and the kids did a great job capturing the essence of a waterfall.
“I have no fear of making changes, destroying the image, etc., because the painting has a life of its own.”
At our last session at Humbercrest we looked at the process of painting like Jackson Pollock. He is most famous for the paintings produced during his ‘drip period’.
After seeing many examples of his work our students embraced the process wholeheartedly and created some pretty amazing works. We kept the mess to a minimum by placing our canvasses in cardboard boxes. Then we got busy dripping, spraying, pouring and flinging paint!
Take a look:
Our classroom was filled with laughter and creativity – just the way we like it.
Today we were very busy creating our own renditions of the famous woodblock print, The Great Wave, by Hokusai. Salt and watercolours were used for the background and then the students carved their very own waves and printed them over the background. Take a look:
You can almost feel the salt spray on your face as the waves crash down.
We had a great time…
