Arts and Crafts 3rd Grade
During the first term, the 3rd Grades were learning and working with the colours. We started with Primary colours, then we studied the complementary colours and finally we found out about cool and hot colours. We would like to share with you some of our works:
Keith Haring Project

For the children, it was an amazing way of learning about an outlandish and self-taughted artist: Keith Haring. One of the most important pop-art artist of the 50'.

One of the most funniest activities was to mix colours. Children learned to mix primary colours to obtain secondary colours. And here you have some artistic works:

Cool Colours / Warm colours
For the children it was fun to colour an igloo in red, yelow and orange and to colour the desert just using cool colours.

MASKS
At Carnival, we decided to create our own masks using white glue and tissue paper. It was a project very interesting for the students because they had to work with mixed media.We used a balloon in which we stuck some plasticine with the facial features. Finally, we stuck some tissue paper bands to the balloon in order to get a hard mask.

CLAY HEDGEHOGS

Children love to make things out of clay, so this time we decided to make a hedgehog pencil holder.
We used white self-hardening clay. As it was too crumbly, we added some water to make it suitable for modelling. We used our hands to make a semisphere then pressed one end to make the head. We also used thicker pencils to poke the holes. The clay shrinks a little when it dries, so it’s a good idea to make larger holes. Then we left the hedgehog to dry in the classroom for one week. Finally, we colour the hedgehog pencil holders with tempera paints.

BOOKMARKS


We had collaborated in an ONG project which is called "Save the Children". We had to design our own bookmarks to sell them later to our families and friends. All the money collected will be sent to this organisation to help Ethiopian children.
