These pots were inspired by Chinese or Greek pottery. Students used oil pastel to create a pot design, looking at the shape and using a line of symmetry. They then used a dark medium and light tone to cover the pot. After this they covered it with tempura paint and used a stick to scratch in the design. They then added a background using a material of choice. I love this scratchboard technique and love the outcome.
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.
