For Art Day, Year 5 explored what the Tree of Life meant and the different interpretations that there are in the media. Many of the Tree of Life images we saw had meanings behind them, such as keeping the environment safe or the importance of nature preservation. We then decided what type of message we would like to deliver to someone, and how we could create that in an image.
We experimented with Printmaking by carving stamps out of potatoes with vegetable peelers. Then we spent the morning testing out different colours, textures, ways to put paint on the stamps and the amount of pressure to put onto our stamps.
Then we finally got to finish our beautiful masterpieces! These are what our artistic class put together. Well done, Year 5!
