It’s been all systems go with us for the last two weeks, as May half term holiday club came and went in a flash – we had beautiful sunshine pretty much all week so it was lovely to be able to get outside for some activities, which included a nature trail. We also had a go at doing some observational drawing, where we brought the art room outside, sat on the grass with a lovely breeze keeping us cool and had a go at sketching The Clubhouse and surrounding area in different mediums, including oil pastels, chalk pastels, charcoal and pencil. I love seeing what the kids produce in their artwork, as it’s so different from child to child! 🙂
Rather excitingly, we began our first after school club this week at Dallas Road School! Each six week course will cover a different topic, the first one being ‘Ceramics’. This week we had a go at making ‘fridge magnets’ from tiles. The children had a play around, sketching some ideas out, before choosing a final design to create. Everyone did so well, the ideas were so lovely, vibrant and varied – we can’t wait until next week when we’ll be moving on to ‘coasters’!
