During the final school term, I was working on a Wednesday with my year 2 class, and I was given the task of teaching Art. I created the Art program for the whole stage, and the other teachers and I decided that we would teach it as a whole grade, therefore making a Wednesday afternoon Art afternoon - which you can guess the children thoroughly looked forward too! So my next few posts will be show casing our artworks - many of which were new to me, having found the activities on other bloggers sites!
Most students followed the instructions well, BUT I would suggest doing the project in stages - i.e. discuss the whole project, but explain the painting process first, then go through the cutting and pasting of the silhouette process after. You can see how well the paintings turned out, and the beauty of this activity is that no two artworks are the same.
