We've been having 'sew' much fun in Year One!

For our Art in a Day this half term, we have explored the work of artist Paul Klee and analysed the colours and shapes that he uses to create his abstract art. We looked in detail at some examples of his work and used key art vocaublary to discuss and describe it.

We went on to explore tecniques for textile art and sewing. We practised our threading skills using a range of resources so that we could then translate these skils when producing our final art piece with fabric and a needle and thread.

Our designs had to include careful thought about shape and colour linking back to our art focus at the start of the day and we planned out our doll character with labelled pictures.

Then we used a range of fabrics and embelishments to create our dolls, sewing the templates together using a running stitch, stuffing them with wadding and then adding detail and decoration to complete.

We had a lot of fun and we really apprecaited the help of some of our mums and nans who came and shared their expertise!
