I worked with a Year 3 class to create this stained glass-effect window, inspired by Matisse’s Tree of Life.
Each child cut brightly coloured tissue paper into nature inspired shapes and carefully stuck them onto a white sheet with a paint brush and PVA glue mixed with water.
Once the pieces were dry, the children glued a silver card frame on top and I trimmed the edges using a craft knife. Each piece was then taped at the back to make a large scale panel.
Our piece was entered into a competition run by Friends of the Earth to win a solar panel for the school. For more images of the process, and to see us in action, go to:
