We have been so lucky to get the opportunity to work with Catherine to create this art project.

The students suggested many ideas that they would like to create a piece of art about. They really enjoy painting and working with wool in the first term. They love nature, animals, space and patterns. We decided together to create “Trees from another Planet”. 

Here are some pictures from the process so far.

Here they are designing paper plates with paint. These plates will make the top of the trees.

Here they are decorating the pots which we upcycled thanks to a local horticultural manager.

Here, they used wool to weave through pieces of canvas. They created different patterns and designs which will make the tree trunk.

Here is a close up of the fabulous patterns that the children made!
