Art with Rose
Children in 3rd & 4th have begun an art project with Rose Hanley. This will be a three week project. In week 1 they got the opportunity to draw from observation and from their imagination. They got to use pencil on paper and then transfer their work to black paper using oil pastels. They then also got the opportunity to use Indian ink to create a picture inspired by their initial drawing from observation. This observation was done in the school garden where there is a lovely bed of wild flowers, that many of the children used as their inspiration.
Week 2 of the project saw great progress with children painting their pictures onto the slate after sketching the outline with chalk. They used acrylic paint and took Rose's advice to begin with the background colour and larger areas of colour and to let the finer detail until week 3.
On the third week, Rose reiterated how important it was to put in the finer detail and that paying attention to detail and taking time over the project gives a better end-product....and there were many beautiful pieces...Here is just a selection...
