Loving our multi media minibeasts artwork that we have been creating this week. Some pieces were completed on Monday with an incursion visit from the Field of Mars, and some were completed today. It was a lot of fun and my students enjoyed the hands on process. This beautiful artwork is made with real blossoms! My students sourced these blossoms from our school grade and with the help of our gardening expert Pressed the flowers. Today the flowers were dry enough to add to our artwork.
I love this artwork that we finished today.. look closely at the cute little lady bugs walking across the leaves. My students painted a whole page green.. I then cut it into leaf shapes and then they glued on the lady bugs. This was then pasted into the plants (which I quickly painted) and we are done! Very cute!
Today we had fun with this spider web activity. I drew a web using a candle.. so my students didn’t know it was there. Then we painted over the wax and suddenly the web appeared. My students loved it. The look of surprise on their faces was beautiful. It’s why I love teaching.. bringing joy to some special kids also brings joy to my heart.
