Reception African Art - designing and outlining to make our Art stand out.
As part of black history month reception have been looking at the history of African masks and many different designs and types of masks. Before we painted our masks we learnt how to design them with a choice of colours and designs. We looked closely at detail and used pencil crayons. Miss Walsh our artist has shown us how to outline our Art work. We remember that it makes our Art pop!
