ArtWindows Year 3
Art in Year 3
Creating with pottery
To round off our topic of ‘Windows’, we have created some amazing windows using the medium of clay.
So far, we have learned how to draw a window. Sounds rather simple doesn’t it? Well, there’s a lot more to it than first meets the eye. We have also coloured and designed our own windows using lines and pattern. The artwork is quite spectacular.
Evie commented, “I liked working with clay because making the prints was easy to do.”
Ella-Mae thought, “Pressing the stamps down was difficult at first but once I’d had a couple of goes I found it much easier. Mr Hall is going to fire my window in a hot kiln at 900˚C – that nine times hotter than boiling water!”
Olivia identified, “When we were drawing, we sometimes used shapes so all the windows looked the same and they looked real when we added colour.”
Ella learned, “The clay was cold because it had to stay firm. But I enjoyed making the shapes and pattern for the bricks and glass.”
Year 3 have really enjoyed this project.
