Cloud Clay Painting
Thursday Morning Activity
Cloud Clay Paintings:
In the style of famed author/illustrator Barbara Reid, students will create layered paintings on canvas boards with cloud clay and Model Magic. These wonderfully squishable polymer clays are light and easy to manipulate, even for little fingers. Students will design their painting following the theme Delicious Desserts! They will learn how to plan out their painting in layers, use modeling tools, and mix their own custom colours. They will learn about foregrounds, backgrounds and overlapping to create a sense of space. Or in more fun terms, they will learn how to make the cake and then how to add the icing and decorations!
Please note: The paintings pictured above are from a previous Cloud Clay painting session. We will NOT be doing the same painting but we will be doing the same style of painting.
Colourful Metallic Paintings in Acrylic:
In this 3 hour session, students will create decorative, colourful paintings embellished with textured metallics. Backgrounds will be created using dendritic printmaking in acrylic paint. Then the paintings will be covered in gold, bronze or copper textured paints through quote stencils creating a beautiful decorative canvas. Or in more fun terms, we get to use squish and squeeze paints and create messy layers of colour on canvas ready to hang in your living room! No two paintings will be alike but they will all be beautiful. This activity is messy! Please wear painting clothes. Plastic aprons and disposable gloves will be provided.
