We got an idea for an art activity on Flickr.
It was to make a game of ‘Snakes and Ladders’
This is how they turned out:
When we read ‘Emlyn’s Moon’ by Jenny Nimmo,
one of the characters, Nia made a collage.
We thought this was a good idea
and we are going to make one too.
This is the work 2nd Class did last year.
We are looking forward to making our collages too.
This one is Aoibhin’s from last year.

Great attention to detail Matthew. At 1st glance it’s hard to tell what’s original & which parts you added. Well done.
What we did today in Art:
First we chose a picture from an old calendar.
Then we took a ruler and pencil
and ruled vertical lines
as wide as the width of the ruler.
Then we cut along these lines
and cut the picture into strips.
We glued the strips down in the correct order
on a larger sheet of white paper
being careful to leave space between the strips.
We looked at the pictures and the colours in them.
We selected colours we would use
that would match these colours.
We drew in the white strips on the page
and coloured them in, to complete the picture.
We admired our work
and that of our friends.
This is also very good JC. Excellent observation and attention to detail. It turned out well.
We continue to have great fun with Digital Art Week,
which due to popular demand has been extended to a second week.
We made these pictures using the Collage Maker from
the National Gallery of Art’s Kidzone.

Many thanks to Adam, a TY student
who is here with us on Work Experience
who helped us do this today.
Many congratulations to Matthew who learned to
‘Paste’ in ‘Paint’,
‘Crop’ and ‘Save’.
