Prep M – Magic Carpets

We made Magic Carpets. We thought up lots of different types of lines and practised drawing them on the whiteboard. Then we had to draw them on our page with pastel. They went from one side to the other. After that we painted our page with watercolours.

Prep Paper Sculptures

Preps had a lot of fun making these paper sculptures. They explored and learnt how to do a few different paper techniques, including, fan folding, curling and fringing. Some of them had an idea in mind about what their sculpture was and others enjoyed just making it. The look fantastic and very colourful.

Prep Printing Art

We introduced the idea of printing today using milk bottle lids as our stamp. It was interesting to hear the definitions that the students had of printing before we started. Most told me how you put a picture into a machine and it comes out the other side the same. A few said you can print from a computer too. It was a good start because we knew that printing means you can copy an image.

The first step for the students was to brush paint onto their lids, they experimented to find that you could get as many as four prints from the one application of paint. As they are working on being their own teacher and visible learners I encourage them to try out ideas and see what works for them.

It was a very successful session printing onto paper plates with 4 colours (red, blue, fluro yellow and black) which will then become clowns next week.

Prep Colour fun

IMG_2310Prep M had lots of fun today trying out new colours with paint.

We tried mixing colours today to try and see what we could make 🙂

We used the Primary colours and black and white.  We learnt that if you add too much black though it turns black. Black makes colours darker and white makes colours lighter.

I made purple by mixing red and blue, yellow and blue make green and I made pink by mixing red and white. I tried pink and brown together it made a dark pink. I used the colours to paint a person riding on a truck. Rishi

I made a messy painting. I mixed colours up and made dots. Some of the colours I mixed together were blue, red and white. Jack

I painted a unicorn. I mixed up red and white and painted the unicorn pink. Miah

I made a rainbow it had red, blue, pink, green, white, yellow and orange I mixed light blue. Kaydee

I mixed dark red I had to use black and red to make it. I used it to paint my robot. I also made a lighter black. Ethan
