Children at Pelham school art club have been creating designs for fishes.
In our first session we copied shapes of fishes from black and white images.
We then gave them patterns and colours from our imagination.
We made templates for the shapes we wanted to make with clay.
In our second session we rolled the clay into slabs and cut the shape twice. We had to remember to flip one of the fish shapes over before we started to scratch, draw and print patterns into the clay.
We then joined the two fishes by inserting a ball of crunched up newspaper to give the fish a rounder shape.
We have now started creating a habitat for our fish.
