Derwent Art Project – Day 1

After our very exciting day on Friday, having great fun messing about in the river, we moved on to putting everything that we had thought about and seen into artwork today.  Judy Hawdon was once again in school and will be with us for the next three days.  Working together the whole school will produce a massive piece of art which will end up being the full length of the IT suite.


Class 1 started us off and, in small groups, dropped different inks and dyes onto massive strips of paper.  Sometimes they added sea salt crystals to create different patterns and effects.  The inks were swirled around the paper and manipulated to create the ripples and waves within the river.  These strips will be layered with Class 2’s work tomorrow.  What do you think so far?
