This week we have been trying to design and make our own special Canopic Jars. Class 10 started on Monday and Class 11 began planning today. The theme was Fit for a King and we had to work as a team in order to create an original piece of art following our study work on mummification, the afterlife, and burial treasures.
Children developed skills and then exploring pattern, form and design, created a base and the shaped and modelled their individual model. After that using tape they tightened and smoothed out their images before applying modroc to their work.
Once it is dry the children will contain to build their levels with paint and resin then following a class discussion the young designers and artists will evaluate their work and make any final touches!
The work will be on display soon. Wait and see what the final results will look like.
