Awesome art

A visiting artist encouraged Year Four Junior pupils to unleash their creative sides as they made their own 3D designs.

Penny Aspinall held sessions with all Year Four pupils during which they learned how to sketch their doodles in pencil before tracing them onto sheets of clear plastic with marker pen.


They then used different types of thread to stitch over their patterns to give them texture.

When the designs were complete, pupils put another sheet of plastic on top and sealed the edges to complete their project.



Year Four teacher Mrs Smith said: “Our art co-ordinator Mrs Mercer arranges for an art expert to come in every year to help children in Years 4, 5 and 6 create different types of work. This visit has been very exciting for them as they have been doing things they have never done before. They were very excited to learn how to use the sewing machine and they have all enjoyed the experience.”
