The CCA Scene / Art and Craft

This week we take a look at the Art and Craft CCA with Year 1 and Year 2.

After school on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Ms Kata Csomo offers this very creative option to budding artists and designers in the Primary school. In the most recent session, the students were working on the technique of découpage.

Put simply, the idea of découpage is to take a picture or an image on a certain kind of fabric, glue it to another object and then decorate the new object with layers of varnish, paint or glitter of a similar hue to one found in the original picture or image. It is a really simple way of taking something that you can find quite readily around the house and then personalising it with your own design. In this sense, you could spruce up old coat hangers, wooden boxes, frames, vases, lampshades – literally, anything!

During their CCA this week, the Year 1 and 2 students produced paintings with the découpage technique using printed tissues as their original pictures and fabric. They then chose which coatings they wanted to use to personalise their images. And, as you can see, the results were absolutely outstanding!! Well done to everybody involved!!
