Hello! i am Elaine Lim-Newton, i am a sculpture artist who mainly works with clay. As part of the Every Child is an Artist Project i will be working with years 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 to experience and make our own fantastic sculptures in clay using lots of different techniques.
We will be making sculptures in a variety of clays, sizes and shapes and colour them with bright clay slips ( runny coloured clay) and shiny glazes. The finished sculptures will be exhibited in a fantastic final event and hopefully be enjoyed by everyone for years to come.
The theme for this term is community so over the last two weeks we have been exploring this theme through drawings and designs. and creating our own 2d totems from the drawings.
We have also been introduced to clay, and have learnt how to prepare it and experiment with textures and mark making with lots of different tools and collected items.
