Easter 2011 Art

Standard

The Empty Tomb – Easter Art.

I did this at school with the help of my art teacher Mrs. Clough. I used mainly watercolour paint on a wooden plaque.

The text around the edge says: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so whoever believes in Him, shall not perish, but have eternal life.”

The Lion Limerick

Standard

Lion in car with policeman looking on bemused

There was a lion from Hive,
Who drove a four-wheeled drive.
He sailed through a light,
Policemen had seen quite a cumbersome sight,
And was fined for the cost of five.

The lion made a friend,
Whose name was Bend.
They hunted in the night,
Ate in the light,
And hid from a cub named Lend.

They hid from the cub,
In a patrol hub.
They sometimes slept there,
But the cub would find them and with his hair…
Tickled them and caused a huge hubbub.

the end!

Story and art work by Hannah Knight.

 

(No) Snow Globes!

Standard

As the title suggests – making snow globes without the snow.

It was really fun!   We came with a small wide jar, and we stuck a base material like foam on the inside of the lid and then we made a scene.

We used foam, paper and plastic items. The parents used a hot glue gun to stick all the bits and pieces to the base.

Then we filled the jar with water and added a small amount of glitter of a colour we liked (but not too much or it would clump together).

Then when the jar was shaken we saw the glitter all about inside like it was snowing over our scene.

I took part in this Christmas workshop with my brother Joshua at ArtPlay on the 11th December 2010.

Recommended age: 2-8yrs.

Here are some pictures of us at the workshop:

Mine is the Santa ‘skating on thin ice’ – Trouble!

Now some interesting and important facts:

Santa is based on a real historical person – Saint Nicholas – a priest from 280 AD who helped people and gave gifts, especially to the poor.

Santa is fun but the real meaning of Christmas is to do with Jesus – who is the saviour of our world.  You can find out more about this historical person and evidence at: http://creation.com/the-nativity-fact-or-fiction – do check it out!

 

Tape It!

Standard

Take some coloured tape

Add it to some more tape to make a…

Picture!

Everyone has different ideas

Interesting view from the balcony

Tape It is really fun!

I went to this on the 19th January 2011 with my brother and mum.  It was conducted at ArtPlay over 6 days.

I would recommend this for ages: 3-12yrs.

Here are some photos of my brother and I doing Tape It! Sometimes we made our own tape it picture and at other times we added to that of others.

Our artwork.

Mum added more tape on the umbrella to finish a work of art!

Colouring in this girl with tape was excellent.

Here is our video clip:
