For our younger children artist Louise Pasquill introduced the children to the ancient art of Gyotaku. A technique once used by fishermen in Japan to identify fish!
Don’t forget to look at what we got up to in Day 1.
Louise showed the children how to make clay fish, concentrating on adding texture to the surface using a variety of tools.
Different colours were added to the wet clay using a roller.
It was magic every time the paper was lifted.
After our prints had dried we cut them out and stuck them in patterns on to the prepared backgrounds from yesterday. For a reminder of how we made these click HERE.
We showed our work in the hall alongside the work from the older children. Our parents came to see.
