Collage

  • Look through your catalogues and newspapers for an image that has been cropped. The best ones for this activity are the photos where things are missing like bodies limbs and heads!
  • Cut out your chosen image. Cut as close to the shape as you. Ask and Adult to help if you need it. 
  • Paste your image in the middle of your paper. 

Drawing

  • Use a pencil to draw the missing parts around the cropped images. You can be as imaginative as you want here. For example you could choose to draw a horse body onto the horse head OR use your imagination to create a new crazy animal!

Colour your drawing

  • Use markers, textas and/or coloured pencils to add colour.

 

TIP: When using coloured pencil, leave some areas light and build layers in other areas to create different tones for a 3d effect.

About

Afternoon Art Club is a nine week program of creative fun and learning. Each term, projects are designed to develop children’s skills to express ideas through making, encourage enjoyment in the process of creating and to develop and refine art making skills. A variety of projects are worked on and designed in response to the interests of the class and may include drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, performance and new media. 

We will be celebrating the end of year with a small celebration in our Afternoon Art Club groups in the final week of the year. We will have some fun Christmas inspired art and craft and music to enjoy. 

Bookings for this program are made directly with the Gallery.
