Here are the highlights of our Great Artisits week…

Making Monday

We made cut out art in the style of Henri Matisse. Pook enjoyed cutting out shapes and using them to create a picture.   Meemoo just enjoyed cutting the paper up, but it was good scissor skills practice.

Miss N made some beautiful Renoir inspired umbrellas by drawing on foil with sharpies.

Wacky Wednesday

We had great fun playing dressing up all day. Meemoo and Pook kept their costumes on all day, even wearing them out on the bus to the city centre.

Sarah made an amazing photo booth, then in the afternoon Miss N made some amazing Picasso inspired art with her photo printouts.

Thinking Thursday

It was an open ended challenge with toilet rolls and straws.  I quickly cut some straws in half, and made some very basic holes in the tubes. I then left it for Meemoo and Pook to discover what they could make.

Pook was inspired by the recent art installation we have in the city centre, using the toilet rolls and straws to make her own version.

Mr Z had some wooden bricks with velcro on to build with.

Foodie Friday

Finally on our Great Artists week, it was time to create art with food. It was messy fun, getting to paint with yogurt, which was dyed using fruits. It started out as natural yogurt to which, fruit was added. The best results where from fruits which have lots of colour, especially berries. Sarah added jelly crystals to her making it thicker to paint with and it looks a lot smoother.  Fun was had by all and it was a great way to encourage healthy eating.
