seasons: autumn



These gargoyles were made with air drying clay.  Each child was given a small ball of clay to shape into a funny face using their fingers and mark making tools.  To make the googly eyes, push your thumbs into the clay to make eye sockets and then add small balls of clay.  To complete, push through the middle of each eye with the end of a paint brush.


I gave these KS2 children colour prints of autumnal scenery which I’d glued onto the centre of some A3 cartridge paper.

Their challenge was to continue the scene using watercolour paints.

This is sometimes called ‘camouflage painting’ and can, of course, be done with any image.
