Laburnum PS Art Show – Art Around the World
We talked about elements of art including, line, tone, shape and in particular the space and how it should be filled or create a focal point.
Students were then given a sheet of tracing paper that was 42cm x 20cm (could you wax paper or other semi-opaque paper).
They folded about 1cm in, then the rest into quarters.
Then students drew and coloured their designs onto the lanterns.
Next we (I held the glue gun) glued the wooden flat sticks in each section and to complete the rectangle, stuck the end together.
I had pre-cut black card with slits 10cm apart so students could push the ends of the sticks through and it would hold it together better. We then glue gunned the black top on with the hole so that a plastic candle light could be inserted for the Art Show.
