Art; Board Games based on ‘Emlyn’s Moon’ and ‘The Snow Spider’ by Jenny Nimmo

We made board games based on books we read by Jenny Nimmo.

Art Activity; Collage – ‘Snakes and Ladders’ boardgames

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:

‘Emlyn’s Moon’ by Jenny Nimmo; A Collage Like Nia’s (Art; Fabric&Fibre)

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.

A Collage Like Nia’s

This one is Aoibhin’s from last year.

Digital Art: We love using ‘Scribbler’.

This is digital art work we did using Scribbler.

First we looked at images of Dublin city on Google.

Then we drew using the Scribbler digital art programme.

Look closely. Can you see The Spire,

the Custom House

the buildings and

the River Liffey?

Procedural Writing: What we did today in Art.

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.
