J3's first art project of the summer term has involved studying collage. They have looked at the collage work of Kurt Schwitters and been inspired by the way in which he sourced his materials from everyday objects.

J3 have displayed outstanding resourcefulness and flexible thinking by turning old magazines and newspapers into some absolutely wonderful pieces of collage work.

First of all, the J3 pupils persevered to compose some fantastic collages of cats and dogs. The pupils then built on their skills and created compositions of penguins by carefully layering lots of small pieces of material. 

Miss Leaver said: "I am highly impressed by the contrast, texture and character that the pupils have all captured in their work. The finished collages are excellent. What a great start to the term!"
