In Art Team AC have been working really hard, first we looked at lots of different fruit, vegetables and flowers to find patterns within them. We took time to do some observational drawing concentrating on the patterns we could see, like the circles in the middle of an onion, the segments of an orange or the petals of a flower. Next each child decided on what they wanted to draw and design to go on their board for printing. Then they etched their designs onto their boards carefully. Finally the children painted their boards and printed it to make their repeating pattern. We have some very talented children in our class and when you see our work we're sure you'll agree!
