Description

Mini Art Adventures with Rachael Harris
For ages 2-4 years

Wednesdays, Fridays & Sundays >
10:00am – 11:00am

Term 2 | 9 May – 17 June

This term we will explore three books by Eric Carle; the Very Hungry Caterpillar, the Very Busy Spider and the Very Lonely Firefly. Every week we will make both 2D and 3D artworks to learn about the lines, colours, textures, patterns and shapes that we can find in our stories. Where will our imaginations lead us? What will our garden animals look like? How will we make them? Join us to discover a colourful world of fun!

Week 1:
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Today we will make our very own clay caterpillar and a very green landscape for them to live in! Thick paint will be used to make a textural leaf with a felt egg as we look at what the caterpillar looked like before it hatched. To practice our shapes, we will also make circular stamped caterpillars on paper.

Week 2:
Butterfly Transformation!
Are you ready to see our caterpillars transform? First, we will make an air-drying clay cocoon attached to a pipe cleaner for us to hang from our handmade branches of different textures. Next, we will make vibrant butterflies with paint and a special butterfly mask.

Week 3:
The Very Busy Spider
This week we will explore lines to make string spider webs with furry spiders and little flies. We will also explore pastels to make a glittering night sky backdrop.

Week 4:
Sunshine and Spiderwebs
Pastels and watercolours will be used today to make a unique web painting! We will also be practising drawing patterns from the different animals in the story and explore light as we make a sun-catching sunshine.

Week 5:
The Very Lonely Firefly
This week we are recycling bottles and jars to make our own unique fireflies and lanterns. We will also make drawings and collages of the house and car where the firefly found light in the story.

Week 6:
Firefly Friends and Fireworks!
We will paint vibrant fireworks today and make some firefly friends so that our lonely firefly won’t be lonely anymore!
