In day two of of our Easter Holiday Course, children worked with artist Shiraz Bayjoo to complete their final piece – a personalised identity map of themselves and their world.
An A3 board was prepared with a background colour
We discussed our ideas from yesterday with new friends
Then worked on the board using techniques learned the previous day.
Wet in wet
Using sponge rollers Dripping and pouring wet paint
We added many layers building up an abstract background and setting the mood for our collage.
The pieces changed and emerged through the morning.We then began to lay out our collaged items, experimenting with different compositions. We used, photographs of our special items, maps, family photos, memento’s and images researched from the internet.
The final works were full of meaning and we were very proud of them.
