Kids school and holiday art clubs

Positive and Negative pattern

This week at Pelham School’s after school art club we were looking at how positive and negative stencils and templates could create pattern through screen printing and other techniques.

We worked in groups of 3 to create a simple screen print.

We used our own shapes to lay ur a simple composition.

DSC_0019Laid the screen on top and spooned on the gloopy acrylic paint which was mixed with a printing medium.

DSC_0022Two of us held the screen tight while the other pushed hard on the squeegee and dragged the paint over the screen.

Peeling back the screen was the exciting part.

We took it in turns while the rest of the class were busy experimenting with different stencilling techniques to create patterns.

We created some wonderful patterns.

We also completed our patterned papers which will be used next week to start making musical instruments, linking in to the work we have been doing on marks and music.
