Art Club got off to a ‘monster’ of a start last week when we were able to let our imagination go wild creating creatures inspired by the characters in ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ by Maurice Sendak.
We began with a collaborative activity where we drew a feature or body part and then passed our drawing on to the next person to add another detail. This included exaggerated heads, curly claws, horns, prickles, bristles and more. It was great fun.
Next, we went on to build our own imaginary creatures using graphite sticks and watercolours.
We have already started to celebrate our work in our Art Club Display board in school.
This week we are looking forward to exploring monoprinting techniques.
