Miss Bryson's Golden Girls

Masking the situation!

Published on Tuesday 9 October 2018 by Miss Bryson.

This week we focused on traditional African masks and why they are used in ceremonies.

Masking the situation!

We began by looking at a variety of designs and creating our own.

These designs will be used to create our own 3-D masks; which we will do with confidence!

Amazing Africa!

We have once again begun an art project with the support of King James Academy. Two inspirational art students visit our school each Friday afternoon to lead a project which has an African theme.

We began by discussing the earliest form of African art; cave art. We used the tea-bag staining technique on to paper; drying it with a hairdryer!

Once dry we used earth-coloured pastels to create African images.

We then got to do the fun part- we scrumpled-up our drawings to create a cave wall effect!
