ART CHALLENGE

Hi everyone!

Hope you are all well and still smiling. I am missing teaching Art so much that I thought I would set you all a weekly Art challenge. If you would like to take part, all you have to do is have a go, take a picture of your fabulous creation and then email it to me, Mrs Clough at class.two@melbury.nottingham.sch.uk

Below is some information about a selection of activities you can have a go at while you are learning at home. I will try to share ideas that need as few materials as possible! Sometimes a pencil and bit of paper is all you need to show your creativity...

Just remember to have fun!

 

Below the creative information is the first 'Weekly Art Challenge'. Because it is the first one you have slightly longer on it; the deadline isn't till Friday 1st May. Remember to email me at the above email address with your examples, by the deadline and I will upload them on to the website so the whole school can admire your work. Remember please don't include your face in the photo if you do not want to appear on the website, just your name and class will be fine.

 

Looking forward to seeing your amazing work!

Take care! Mrs Clough smiley

As always please send them to me at class.two@melbury.nottingham.sch.uk

Thank you! 😁

Weekly Creative Challenge (5) - Monday 25th May

 

I know it is half term but I thought you might have a little down time at some point and want to do some Art, so I thought

I'd upload another challenge!

 

Transient art is just 'art that is moveable'.

It's about using lots of different materials to create a picture, pattern or structure.

You can make it indoors or outdoors and use a mixture of man-made and natural objects.

 

You can record your transient art by taking a picture.

As always, I would love it if you sent me your wonderful creations to Mrs Clough at class.two@melbury.nottingham.sch.uk

 

Have a lovely half term! smiley

Let's try some origami this week. All you need is paper!

You could make an origami animal, flower, or other object!

As always send pictures of your amazing artwork to me, Mrs Clough at class.two@melbury.nottingham.sch.uk

Weekly Creative Challenge (2) - Monday 4th May

 

Watch the video below for this continuous line drawing challenge.

It gives you time to draw to some relaxing music.

This exercise is great because you can use any kind of pen or pencil. 

Experiment with different objects (your favourite toy, a piece of fruit etc.).

Try as many times as you like. Sometimes it's good to try more than once to see how your drawing changes.

You can email your pictures to Mrs Clough at:

class.two@melbury.nottingham.sch.uk

Make sure you write 'Art Challenge' in the Subject box.

Deadline is Friday 8th May.

I will collect them to make an online gallery of your work!

Story challenge

Our wonderful resident artist, Peter has sent me an email wishing you all the very best in this tricky time. He has also sent me a beautiful book he has written called 'Rainbow Stories' which has been created from stories told by children of Arboretum Nursery School, Nottingham. If you can, please have a read of it and let me know what you think. What was your favourite story? Could you perhaps write your own story and email it to me?

 

Peter has suggested some questions that might help you write about the stories;

 

  • Why do you think the Tree Ghost stops crying at the end of its story?
  • What do you think happened next to the Tree Ghost?
  • Why do you think the Big Baddy Shadow Monster ate the little mouse?
  • What could the little mouse have done to avoid the Big Baddy Shadow Monster?
  • The Star Fish and the Spider were very different to each other. How did their story have a happy ending?
  • Can you imagine a story about them, or anyone else in the book?
  • Why do you think Fred and Freida the garden gloves are always arguing?
  • What is the best thing about Fred and Freida being together?
  • What do you think has happened to Grandpa and the Little girl in the story?
  • Why do you think they like spending so much time together?
  • Why do you think it’s important to tell each other stories?
  • What do you think when you see a rainbow in the sky?

Here are some more creative ideas...
