February Half-Term Workshops
February Half Term Activities
Celebrating Chinese New Year...
We had a great time creating a variety of different Chinese-New-Year-themed artworks for February Half Term!
On Tuesday we started off with paper folding. We created dogs, frogs, fortune tellers and fishes. The children decorated them brilliantly once they'd finished folding all the different shapes. Take a look at what some of them made..
Fortune Teller and Fishies
Some of the children even had time to make some lovely drawings at the end of the workshop!
Next up we had Zodiac Ceramic Head workshops on Wednesday morning and Wednesday afternoon. The children worked on creating different animals of the zodiac, including horses, roosters, oxes, snakes and more!
Here's a little look at the finished heads ready to go into the kiln to be fired. Keep an eye out on our Facebook to see them when they've been fired and glazed.
For our final workshop on Thursday we created fans, dragons and paper lanterns! The children all had a lot of fun colouring in their dragons and decorating the lanterns with Chinese lettering and patterns.
