Our artwork in Year 7 has involved the pupils learning about different ways in which we can use paint. All class members are familiar with using paint brushes. Art teacher Miss M introduced the idea of printing using various objects.
A recent lesson started with our routine preparation. All pupils are expected to independently find an apron. They are also given the choice of wearing some protective painting gloves.
Miss M presented the Year 7 pupils with a choice of printing materials. These included wood, pasta and cork. The class members were asked to work through each item in order and create a series of patterns. The pupils were encouraged to make a choice about which colours to use.
This was a fun activity that also helped with sensory skills. It enabled the students to work independently and make their own choices.
