The children had a wonderful time this week exploring patterns and creating their own master pieces! They found out about the artist 'Melanie Yazzie' and used some of her art work as a stimulus for their own printing tile that they drew, made and then used to complete the print design on their T-shirt. They also used fabric pens to decorate the other side of their T-shirt. They enjoyed all the activities and were extremely proud of their T-shirts.
In Reception we have been exploring different types of lines and dots. We read the book 'The Dot' by Peter Reynolds. Following this the children have enjoyed using different types of media to create their own art work and design their own t-shirts. On our t-shirts we used fabric pens to create our designs. What a fabulous week it has been to end our first half term. We hope you all have a fantastic restful break and we will see you all on Monday 1st November! Thank you, Recep
