Spring Term Art & DT Project is making Automata. We will design and create a 3D moving model of an endangered animal.
Watch this space for more details...
So far, we have investigated how cams and followers work and how they create movement. We made a simple 2D model of a working cam to help us understand the mechanics.
Reach For The Stars!
This is our class motto this year.
We are all aiming to reach our own personal star!
Autumn Term Art & DT. Project has focussed on birds.
We began the term sketching birds using pencil (HB, 2B, 3B, 4B, 6B); seeing how the different pencils created marks of differing intensity. We carefully studied the details in our bird on a photograph and recreated the birds in our sketch books. We also studied bird feathers and drew a single bird feather in even greater detail.
