On Friday of week 2 the Harinui Syndicate went to the Tech Room to begin their ART topic for the term.
Looking and listening
Thinking and talking
We sat carefully and listened and watched, and talked too! Mrs O’Grady showed us a clay pinch pot her grandson had made and decorated for her. It looked great!!
We plan to make one too. Instead of clay we will use salt dough (playdough) and then bake it slowly in the oven to harden it.
It is small
Mrs O’Grady’s Pinch Pot
It is lovely!
We watched Mrs de Koning printing patterns and textures onto pieces of dough. We passed the strips of dough around and felt them.
Next week we will come in one class at a time, so we have more room around the table. Then we will each experiment with pressing, rolling, pinching and printing on a piece of dough. It will be fun to try out lots of techniques, getting ready for making the pinch pot the next week.
More photos to come!
