This end of term activity was a big hit with my Year 4/5 extension class. We used some photos of animal hand paintings for reference and then just had a go. I absolutely love the resulting photographs!
Inspired By Stormie Mills
Stormie Mills is a well known artist in Perth, Western Australia, and a favourite of mine. See his style of work on his website We worked with charcoal to create a Stormie Mills inspired character. I love the results!!
This was a project done with my Year 4-5 extension class. We used plaster bandage over plastic face molds to create the masks. These were then mounted onto a cardboard backing. From there, the kids went nuts with painting and decorating. Luckily there were no major hot glue injuries!
I completed this project with a class of ESL students, ranging from Year 4 to Year 6. We made our snails, decorated them with different textures and patterns, bisque fired them, glazed them and then fired them for a second time. To finish them off, we added pipe cleaner antennae! Artists work shown: Elle, YiChen, Yuri and Irin.
