recent work

Managed to find some time to explore variations on a theme. Instead of full colour paintings/drawings, I tried to strip them back to a bare minimum, using colour for the backgrounds only. Particularly like the skateboarder.

masks & swimmers

Long time no post - it's report writing and end of year assessment time!
A couple of recent projects.
'African' masks with our y2's - simple symmetrical card cutouts.


And automaton swimmers with y4's.



When you blow through a straw along its back, the arms 'flail' around! (the head acts as a turbine).

another peg

Managed to find time, using another vintage peg, to create an automaton! As the handle is turned the figure goes up and down - he's supposed to be a swimmer. Not sure whether to add paint or just leave alone.
