Amazing Art!

This week in Art, the children were introduced to the artform of ‘batik’. This process involves a design being traced onto a piece of cloth, which is then covered with wax. The piece of cloth is then dyed and the wax removed. Once removed, the cloth will reveal an intricate pattern as the dye will not cling on to the wax.

In preparation for the unit, the children practised deconstructing and reconstructing materials to form an aerial view of a river. The children used materials such as tissue paper, card and plastic and reconstructed using methods like rolling, curling, folding and gluing. This tied in well with our Geography unit all about rivers and the children produced some unique creations.

Next week, the children will complete their very own batik artwork. We can’t wait to see the end result!
