This term in Mini Art Adventures, we will explore children’s books. Each session, we will begin by reading a story together and then proceed with an activity that has been inspired by the book.

Week 1:
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish
Our first week will be all about exploring colour! Together we will use cotton buds, acrylic paint and coloured paper to create our very own fish tanks for our colourful fish friends. In this session, we will create the cover for a storybook of our own that we will take home at the end of the term.

Week 2:
Slinky Malinki
This session is all about our pets! Do you have a special friend that you can bring a picture of to Mini Art Adventures? Or maybe you’ve got a fantasy pet or a soft toy? Either way, this class will be all about constructing a house for our animal friends to live inside.

Week 3:
The Pear in the Pear Tree
What’s your favourite kind of tree? Today’s class will be exploring trees by pasting and cutting out leaves and fruit; together we can collaborate to create a Mini Art Adventure tree that we’ve grown out of our imagination!

Week 4:
My Place
Using Jeanie Baker’s beautiful collage storybook images as inspiration, we will spend today’s art adventure exploring collage. We will be using recycled, cut and coloured paper this lesson, so we welcome you to bring in pretty leftover wrapping paper or origami paper from home to include in your collages. We will use the scraps to create paper pulp for our next class.

Week 5:
The Terrible Underpants
This silly story will inspire us to think about textures, the different materials that we create and the marks that we can create on them. Using the leftover paper from our collages, we will create a paper pulp and each have a turn at making our own textured, recycled paper.

Week 6:
Tessa Snaps Snakes
Our last Mini Art Adventure is all about YOU! Using large paper, we will pair up to trace outlines of each other’s bodies and decorate them with all of the things that you love to do and that make you, YOU!
