Dinosaur army!

User Rating:  / 1

For our Art in a Day this half term, we have made links between our Dinosaur topic and our art unit of 3D work to make clay dinosaurs.

We learnt about the artist Anthony Gormley and looked at some of his 3D work including the famous Angel of The North and an installation that he created called 'Field' which was made up of many clay figures. Inspired by this work, we each created our own clay dinosaur which could be combined to make a dinosaur version of 'Field'.

We developed our clay skills initially using Playdough and explored the different ways to manipulate the clay and to use tools for mark making to create texture on the surface.

We then applied our skill to the clay and each made a unique dinosaur on which we tried to include some of the features which we have learnt about through our topic work.

We had great fun and were very pleased with our final pieces!
