Clay pot design template

(0)
When making clay thumb pots, the children can design their pot on this sheet. They can create a pattern for the outside of the pot and an image to go inside. The pot templates can be adapted so that the children design Greek or Roman pots, or create special decorative pots for Mothers or Fathers day.

Themed diorama

If you know The Jolly Christmas Postman you will have seen an example of a diorama like this. They are quite easy to make and look great on display. I have based my example on The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, but you could have any theme. There are clear instructions, plus photographs of a finished diorama and images of the four parts of my example. You can use this idea for any book or topic in your curriculum.

Art work based on the Brazilian artist Romero Britto

(1)
Romero Britto is a Brazilian artist who creates very colourful and patterned artworks. I have provided an example of a piece of art in his style, using my name. You could ask the class to do their names or to choose words like 'happy', 'friend', etc. Children really enjoy using as many bright colours and patterns as they can. The finished works make a stunning display. I have also included an information poster with an example of Romero Britto's work

This is a quite simple art idea as long as everyone follows the instructions. The end results look really good as a display in the classroom and I find that the children usually really enjoy it and want to make more.

This is an idea which I took from 'Artattack'. You could use the same principle for other masks or helmets. They make a very impressive display in the classroom.

Enlargement picture

This is an activity which requires children to create a larger version of the small picture by copying the lines in each square in proportion. It may help the children to do the activity with the sheet upside down so that they focus on each square and don't look at the whole picture.
Famous Faces Art

Famous Faces Art

(0)
I collect pictures of famous people from magazines, (preferably A4 size). Children can choose a picture which they then cut in half. Stick one half onto a piece of drawing paper and draw in the other half. It sometimes helps to turn the paper upside down so that the children look at specific lines, not the person as a whole. They can then colour in their drawn half matching the original as closely as possible. Once finished, the pictures can be mounted and make a great display in the classroom.

This is a nice art activity to do with children in the run-up to Christmas. The final stage is a bit fiddly, but the children really enjoy making their Santas dance.

This activity can be used to make a Christmas heart-shaped basket or a container for Valentine's Day treats. It can be quite fiddly, but the finished baskets look great and can be filled with sweets or small cookies.
Day and Night Two-Way Pictures

Day and Night Two-Way Pictures

(0)
These look great when they are finished. I have given clear instructions on the first sheet and pictures of an example which I created. The trick is to keep the pictures as simple as possible so that the children can recreate them for day and night. They are a bit difficult to display, but children are fascinated by seeing the difference from one side and then the other.
