The students began by creating a continuous line drawing of toys from life, before using a view-finder to select a section of their drawing. They then copied and enlarged this section before abstracting it by changing the colours, inspired by the work of Kandinsky. This section was then used as a starting point for their sculpture.
To create the sculpture they bent the wire around the outline of their enlarged section before drilling two holes into a wooden base and glue-gunning it, to make it secure. They then used a leg from a pair of tights and stretched it tightly over the wire and base before having it staple gunned at the bottom. The sculptures were then painted white, before drawing on their design and painting it.

This term Year 5 have been exploring the work of the Action Painters and looking at 20th Century sculptor, Dorothy Dehner. The students began by using different objects from home and nature to create experimental marks onto cardboard using poster paint before cutting shapes from the cardboard and slotting them together.
