Only 'Yoking'

 Today the children made some Easter eggs and Easter Baskets.  The eggs were boiled and dyed with 'Natural' colouring agents including, vinegar, red onion, turmeric and 'natural' food colourings.  They stuck a variety of materials to the eggs as a stencil such as stickers, elastic bands, ribbon, lace and lots more.  The end results 'Eggstravigant'.  They also learned in the process which dye worked the best and we also learned the difference between free range and caged hens.

Messy Madness

Tonight the kids @halewoodsarts are doing a bit of everything and anything.  Tonight is a chill out night were the kids can do whatever they like.  The boys have decided to make some quirky aeroplanes and the girls drew some interesting horses and cats.  They have decided to experiment with materials and objects and have come up with some great ideas as usual.

Painting on Canvas

Becky Bryson; the talented artist, came to work with the children tonight to produce artwork on canvas. We first practiced on paper drawing faces and animals, and then we transferred the pictures to canvas using black marker and paints. There were some beautiful self portraits, footballers and even dinosaurs!
