Autumn Art Workshop

October 2008

The Art Workshop this term was inspired by nature. The parents and pupils had the opportunity to paint and then decorate a photograph frame.

First they painted the frame using gold paint then added decoration by using tissue paper cut into leaf shapes. The shapes were then covered with iridescent film which gave the leaves a shimmery effect.

Everyone had an enjoyable time. Here are some of the comments from the parents and pupils:

  • "We enjoyed working together"
  • "We would like more art activities and workshops in the future"
  • "The best bit was letting my daughter decide what she wanted to do"
  • "In future I would change the design of some of my leaves"
  • "More art workshops please maybe clay modelling".
