Art from artifacts
Year 5 pupils seeking inspiration for an upcoming art project found it in spades at the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.
The children spent time sketching artifacts as the starting point for a series of prints – screen print, poly-print and a mono-print. These will be displayed in a small book that the children will make by collaging different materials into a pattern for the front cover. The prints will be glued into the book alongside two further pieces of artwork developed from the original drawings.
Several of the pupils are planning to return to the Museum with their parents in pursuit of further sketching opportunities.
