Arts week in Jigsaw 2019

Arts week – 2019

During Arts week, we were given the theme of Woodlands.

We decided to focus on leaves and spent time exploring them in a variety of  different ways.

We collected a variety of different leaves from around the school and spent time observing them, noticing their patterns and textures.

We then used paint to explore this further, printing the leaves patterns onto paper – we used a variety of colours and experimented with mixing the paint on the palettes and on the leaves

Later on in the week, we used the printing technique to make the outlines of leaves onto Binca material and we then use thread to sew on extra detail onto the leaf shapes. We continued to explore this by printing the leaves onto felt and adding further detail with pen, paint and thread.
