Aims :

  • To encourage the children to use their creative skills
  • To enable them to use a wide variety of artistic mediums
  • To enjoy creating, designing and making an item and appreciate the finished product.

 

During the year we use techniques such as acrylic painting, decoupage, assemblage, collage and glass painting.

We made a variety of items which we sold at the Christmas Fair.

We also use elements of printmaking, still life and portraiture using a variety of materials.

 

The children help to design and make a wide range of craft items, using various materials

eg. Hand made Christmas cards, Yule logs, glass painted tea lights, Handmade Christmas decorations.  We have currently been designing and making products for the school craft fair which include decorative picture frames, hand decorated gift and trinket boxes and storage jars.
