Earlier this week Class two were visited by Tanya Morel who is from the Daisi art project. She came in to work with us to create our own digital print based on our topic of Minibeasts.
To start with the children had to hand draw a minibeast of their choice, they got very creative, thinking outside of the normal garden minibeasts. Then we traced our pictures on to some foam sheets before cutting them out. We then stuck our cut out minibeasts on to a piece of A4 card to create a printing pallet.
Once the pallets were complete, it was time to start printing. Each member of class 2 had to produce 6 prints of their minibeast. The children had great fun using printing inks and rollers and Tanya was very impressed with how quickly and professionally they worked.
When the prints were dry, the children got to work on a 1:1 basis with Tanya using a laptop and a special camera. They took pictures of each print, ensuring they moved them slightly to create a movement when making their video. Tanya then took their mini videos away and added them together with music to create the final piece.
Here is the link for the final product:
Class 2 thoroughly enjoyed their day with Tanya and worked really hard to create some fabulous prints and wonderful class video of their work. Well done all.
