WALT: I can create a 3-d vessel using paper mache.
Have pupils bring in old/recyclable plastic containers. Spray the containers with an oil "cook and spray". Layer strips of newspaper over the vessel. Hold these up to the light to ensure they are properly covered. Layer at least 4 layers of newspaper.
Once dry, pupils can pull out the plastic container and decorate the vase using acrylic/tempera paint.
This was a 3D development to our Chinese and Greek inspired pots from last lesson. Students really enjoyed doing paper Mache and I really look forward to painting these next lesson
During Key Stage 2 pupils develop their creativity and imagination through more complex activities. These help to build on their skills and improve their control of materials, tools and techniques. They increase their critical awareness of the roles and purposes of art, craft and design in different times and cultures. They become more confident in using visual and tactile elements and materials and processes to communicate what they see, feel and think.
