Junior Art Clubs
Two groups of creative girls from the Junior School have participated in the annual Lantern Making Club and the popular Seasonal Decorations Club. This year, instead of making large single lanterns, the girls made individual paper angels to adorn a string of fairy lights. The whole process began with a colourful design sheet, moving on to a simple wax resist technique to create the bright papers.
The girls experimented by adding extra details to their work, using paper punchers, drawing motifs and attaching glitter and sequins. The seasonal decorations club also began with a design sheet and the girls decided on their favourite colours and patterns.
They then used metallic paints to cover the base of their Christmas wreath and added their own designs to the hanging seasonal shapes. To complete the decoration, the pupils selected lots of different threads and pretty ribbons to wrap around the wreath.
Both Art Clubs were very enjoyable and the girls, as ever, produced some wonderful crafty art works to take home.
