6th Grade Silhouette Workshop

Today, 14 x 6i students at NGG International School in Denmark started assembling festive cards and gifts for the holiday season. In the past couple of weeks’ they have been learning about watercolour techniques, and how to make the colour wheel from just red, blue and yellow. They also made a beautiful watercolour painting,  which last week they cut into miniatures and added twilight silhouettes of houses, trees and the occasional giraffe or turtle!
This week saw them making handmade envelopes and silhouette lanterns. The radio played Christmas tunes, and we all began to feel that special ‘tingle’, that only comes at this special time of the year.
The little elves of 6i have been having a lovely creative time 🙂
These are their last few weeks studying art and design for this school year. Students from 6n will be commencing in January 2015 – they’ll be learning about self-portraits,  colour and perspective drawing first. With plenty of wonderful craft projects for Valentine’s day and Easter too.

Here’s some of today’s masterpieces:

Shocking Pink!

Since late August 2014,  6i and 7i at NGG International School in Denmark have been building a strong foundation in art and design.
Areas covered in this half year course included:
Self Portraiture, understanding perspective, sketching, working with pastels – and now colour theory and watercolour painting with 6i. While 7i are finishing off with a crash course at working with wire.
It’s been a great pleasure to work with these young people,  we’ll hook up again in August 2015.

Here are some wonderful examples of their ‘Understanding Perspectives’ project. It’s on display now in the school aula – warming our hearts with the excellent quality of the artwork,  and the ‘shocking pink’ colour of the exhibition on a dark Danish winters day 🙂
