Exploring Autumn festivals with KS1

Louise and Lana have been exploring the creative potential of Autumn this term.


We started off by using natural materials to ‘draw faces’ as part of our half term focus on Exploring Drawing to get us started. (click the links to see previous projects.)


As we got closer to half term we combined lots of skills to make Halloween cards, spider webs and gorgeous little spider sculptures with google eyes!DSC_0167 DSC_0168 DSC_0169 DSC_0173 DSC_0174 DSC_0175

We painted art straws and made them into a web.DSC_0176 DSC_0191

Then used polystyrene balls and pipe cleaners to make spider sculptures.DSC_0192 DSC_0193 DSC_0195 DSC_0197 DSC_0219 DSC_0220

Little fingers were working hard!DSC_0223 DSC_0225 DSC_0227 DSC_0229 DSC_0231 DSC_0232 DSC_0233 DSC_0234 IMG_8678 IMG_8675 IMG_8676 IMG_8677

After half term we used wax resist techniques to make wonderful firework scenes.IMG_8905

We created a colourful background using wax crayon, then painted over the top.IMG_5907

We scratched through the paint to make firework scenes then layered with glitter for accents.IMG_5906

The children used colour with great expressive effect.IMG_5905 IMG_5904

Created distance by layering different media.IMG_5903 IMG_5902

There were some strong compositions and warm tones in these spectacular works.IMG_5901 IMG_5900

This one really conjures up the movement of a sparkler!IMG_5899 IMG_5898
