Half Term Hang Out (sloths) day 1: new venue at Gosforth Academy same fantastic ART4 projects! We used embroidery hoops, dowels, and templates to help us make these fab Sloth wallhangings! We chose different shades of green for the leaves, and added flowers to finish! I think they’re very cute!

Half Term Hang Out (Sloths) Day 3: well...we started our morning with guided drawing on canvases! The children were so attentive and followed along with me beautifully! Their drawings have turned out absolutely brilliantly! I can’t wait to get painting after break!
Half Term Hang Out (Sloths) Day 3: true artist palettes! The colour mixing is going really well, we’re trying to make as many different shades of green as we possibly can! We’re then using them, loosely blended, to create realistic, life like leaves for our rainforest backgrounds! I’m loving this stage already!
Half Term Hang Out Day 3: WOW! I’m SO impressed with these sloth canvases! They have taken such skill and lots of concentration but the end results are absolutely AMAZING! The children are so proud of these! I love it!
Half Term Hang Out Day 3: the Sloth houses, created inside old sweet tins, have been a big hit this afternoon at ART4. We’ve designed a forest background, made food/water bowls and we’ve even got sloth sleeping bags!
Half Term Hang Out (sloths) Day 4: collages are all finished! We used all sorts of different materials and techniques to create texture and colour variations and assembled them as we went along! They look fantastic, the layering works brilliantly!
Half Term Hang Out (sloths) Day 4: Neon Sloths are our last activity of the week! They’re looking so bright and colourful, I’m really rather looking forward to seeing them completed!
