Creative learning at home

 

On this page, whilst you are learning from home, I'll be sharing creative ideas, links to creative pages and weekly challenges for all children (and adults) to get involved in.  I will try to share challenges that require materials that are readily available in most homes.  However, if you don't have the materials feel free to get creative and adapt the challenge! Below is the first challenge.  Have fun!

Challenge 6 - Create your own sketchbook

This is a fun activity that you can work on over time. Collect together any pieces of paper that you find in your house. This could be: envelopes, wallpaper samples, writing paper, parcel paper wrapping paper, pages of old books (be imaginative) Next find a piece of cardboard to make your front and back cover. Raid your recycle bin or wait for your next box of cereal to be emptied - this will nicely make a sturdy cover.

   

 

Your front cover can be personalised with bits and bobs found in your home.

Next, pop your found paper on the inside - folded in half to create a centre crease.

     

The easiest way to bind all of this together is with an elastic band through the middle of your gathered paper (ask your postman - they carry lots of used ones)

Or if you have a hole punch and wool - this would work well too. Be creative!

         

Once your sketchbook has been made - enjoy filling it full of creative drawings, experiments, artists work that excites you, ideas, sketches, andpaintings over the next few weeks. You can add pages and take them out over time.

Challenge 5 - Flipbook Animation

 

The Science Behind Flip Books

Persistence of vision is the optical illusion created by the fast moving images such as a flip book. The images are moving faster than your eye so instead of seeing individual pictures your eye sees the pictures as if it is moving.

 

Step 1: Draw your object on the first page.

Step 2: On the second page, draw the same object but slightly moved to one side.

Step 3: Continue to draw your object on each individual page. Each time slightly move the object.

Step 4: Flip through the pages and watch your animation come to life!

 

A great one to start with is a bouncy ball!

 

Check out this link for a flipbook tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Un-BdBSOGKY

 

Send you animation to Miss Bell:

Challenge 3 - It's not a box!

Have you got any cardboard boxes hanging around?  Did your grownup think they were rubbish?  Have they put them in the recycling yet?  If not, quickly, get your hands on them.  They are not just boxes!  This week you can create some 3D artwork (sculptures) like some of the masters.

Below are some pictures of sculptures which have been created by some of my all-time favourite artists; Pablo Picasso and Joan Miro.  They are very simple and have great impact. 

 

Pablo Picasso

  

Joan Miro

 

Using your box/boxes you can create sculptures with a similar effect to Picasso’s and Miro’s. Here are the basic instructions:

  1. Cut out a variety of shapes (you can draw them out beforehand or freestyle it).
  2. Cut slots on each piece.
  3. Join the pieces together.
  4. Try joining them in lots of ways.
  5. Turn it around and upside down.  What looks best?

Watch this clip to see how to join the pieces https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ehwpM230OM

 

       

 

     

 

Below are some ideas on how to make your sculpture unique to you:

  • Use angular shapes or rounded shapes
  • Choose one shape or lots of shapes
  • Decorate the card beforehand or don't
  • Use lots of colour, work in monochrome (black, white, grey) or simply use the colour/s of the box/es.
  • Use patterns or flat colours
  • Work extra large or in miniature
  • Make your work abstract or create something realistic - a creature or plant or object or person
  • Cut out body parts or facial feature and slot them together
  • Make a mobile (hang it) or have a free standing work

Challenge 2- Continuous Line Drawing

Watch the video on this site: https://www.accessart.org.uk/continuous-line-drawing-exercise/ 

Can you draw an object without taking your pen off the page?! This exercise is great because you can use any kind of pen, pencil or drawing equipment. Experiment with different objects (your favourite toy, a piece of fruit etc.).

Try as many times as you like. Sometimes it's good to try more than once to see how your drawing changes.

Challenge 1 – Transient Art

 

Transient art is simply art without glue! Non-permanent art. You can use anything to make your artwork (natural or synthetic)! It can be small-scale or large-scale and individual or collaborative.

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to create a piece of transient art.  Why not create several using different materials (sticks, fruit, stones, lego, recycling)? Get the family involved or why not have a transient art-off?  The possibilities are endless.  Get creative and get making!

 

Here are some examples of transient art:

    

 

 

Andy Goldsworthy is a famous artist who creates transient art.  Here are some examples of his work:

YEAR 6 'THE GREATEST SHOWMAN' RECORDING

Our Year 6 children had the opportunity to record some of the songs from their production of 'The Greatest Showman' on Wednesday 24th July at 'Paper Stone' recording studio on Haydn Road. A big thank you to Hugh, Lila Jones' dad for making this happen. The children sound incredible and you might need some tissues at the ready! Click on the link below to hear their amazing recording.

   Year 6 children have had a fantastic opportunity to work with award winning eco-artist Sarah Turner. The children learnt how to make a plastic bottle flower and then place them into a frame which they painted. The stunning art installation was then displayed with 14 other primary schools at Cafe SoBar from 27th May - 12th June. The work was called Urban Garden.
