Visual Art

Me in a Box

The students were asked to use a variety of media, text and images to create their own ‘Me in a box’ sculptural artwork. The artwork needed to communicate a message about something that is important to them, constructed like a diorama in a box. This connected with their Unit of Inquiry, ‘People use different forms of expression to convey their creativity’.

Sculptural Creatures

The student’s watercolour painting of a mixed-up animal led onto an adaptation of their creature into a papier-mâché sculpture. Using a variety of plastic and cardboard products they created the base of their animal which was then papier-mâché with coloured tissue. This unit of work linked to the students’ Unit of Inquiry, ‘Adaptations are essential to cope with changes’.

Watercolour Creature

The students had to create an imaginative creature that was part plant and part mixed up animal. The image was drawn in black pen then painted. Watercolour paints were applied to add colour as well as to explore the properties of this versatile medium.
