Recently I posted a series of challenges for our Year 5/6’s ignited by the picture book The Antlered Ship. One of the stations had an art and design spin where students began the project with me (30%) and then needed to complete (70%) back in class. With me students learnt the process of ‘transferring’ the outline to their Matt board and were given lots of ideas of how they might complete it back in class eg, pencil shading, geometric shapes, pastel etc. I briefly discussed techniques. One of our students shared her finished project with me today and I was stunned, I think it is simply gorgeous.
I wonder what the kids will call me, today one said "I'm looking for the Apple Teacher"......and another said "Are you Mrs Maker?" ......funny.
