Year 2 Trip to Nature in Art

On Thursday 8th November, Year 2 visited Nature in Art as an introduction to their topic of Art Attack. Whilst there we learnt how to do printing with rollers and how to layer colours to add detail. The children all chose a mini-beast to draw and then print. We also made tissue paper bowls using tissue paper and watered down PVA glue. This was incredibly tricky and fiddly, not only for the children but also for the staff and adult helpers! We made our bowls using red and black tissue paper to recreate a poppy following our previous short topic on Remembrance. In the afternoon, children had the opportunity to explore the exhibit which was British nature through photography.

There were photographs of animals and plants in each gallery. The children really enjoyed looking at the photographs and choosing their favourite. We also got to look at the sculptures in the sculpture garden and meet the artist in residence.  We had a brilliant time at Nature in Art and are enjoying exploring more mediums to create our own masterpiece.
