Cut Paper Still Life

I have been working on these cut paper still lives in a few of my schools and Eassie and Newtyle schools have produced these magnificent examples and we can't wait to show them off.

The class started off by preparing papers that represented the oranges, fabric and the jug, using ready mixed paint.  The shapes were then drawn and cut out and added to a black background.

With a little introduction to composition and depth, all that is needed is a dark watery shadow.  Stars all of them!

We had a huge Christmas card making event at Southmuir Primary, Kirriemuir today and here are some of the results, aren't they great?

We worked in the hall, and the P1,2,3 class was 80 in number!  Quite an undertaking, but the children loved it.

The next class was slightly smaller, about 60! and the results were even better.
notice the nice Scottish touch with the Tunnocks Caramel Wafer scarf

When the P6's and 7's arrived we had really perfected the lesson and the results are outstanding!

A big thank you to Danielle Hue for all her help!
