We are doing 2 weeks of after school art classes at Old Hutton School. Today we learnt about oil and water by using oil pastels to draw our fish in a fish bowl and then painting the water with water colours. If you have done this technique before, you would have seen it is a very effective way of showing the children the relationship between oil and water. They had great fun creating the underwater scene – some of the boys got creative with swimmers with missing limbs due to the shark attacks in the fish bowl (why I love working with children- imagination and laughter).
For the children that had finished their fish bowl art, we gave them a copy of the book and got them to draw some of the Felltarn Friends. This art is brilliant, so many talented children. I have scanned these pictures in and added them as headers throughout the website. Thank you to all of Class 1 children at Old Hutton, you are amazing!!!
It is a very rainy day and none of us want to venture outdoors so it is a perfect day to test out our new Felltarn Friends Wibbly Craft Pages on the girls. We have created a page for each of the Felltarn Friends and after they are coloured in, the children can cut out the friend and attach their arms, legs and tail with split pins -making all the limbs move. Here is what our brilliant, creative daughters made – Hatty, Alice and Bridget!
