Hello everyone, hope the easter hols are still going with a swing!
At work recently my students were doing their art enrichment session, with the theme of layered collages. The session was led by my colleague, and I was joining in, assisting etc and generally having a grand old time! These sessions are so amazing, our students have had a pretty hard time of it in mainstream education and these creative sessions show the talents they have as well as allowing us valuable pastoral time.
So I decided to get my hands dirty and created a flower:
Then I made a fabric flower from the scraps at the bottom of the art supplies box
Both flowers are going to be used by 2 of my students as part of much larger collage projects, cant wait to see how these turn out!
I just love how art and craft activities really help to calm and de-stress - it has that effect on the young people I work with as well.
(A- the flower was made from blue paper hand towels and then coloured by areosol paint!)
