This session started with tracing archeological finds and creating these planet’s cross-secion artworks. The students marked places in and between the layers of soil and rocks where different objects were found.
The afternoon group started work on the installation made of images of imaginary landscapes and forests. As part of research they explored the school’s polytunnel and photographed different types of plants. Once siting outside they also made drawings of fantastic plants and creatures.
Here are images of the outcome of the second stage of work on the island project. Each student chose one of the shapes from previously drawn archipelagoes. Using colour paper they created amazing volcanoes, lakes, rivers, buildings and roads as seen from above.
The Group 2 started work on their island project with drawing these archipelagoes. Each island has a different shape as students come up with many imaginative ideas for their shoreline. Some of the students included extra ‘geological’ as well as ‘human-made’ features such as lakes, rivers, volcanoes and roads.
Students of Group 1 responded to the collection of old, worn and thrown out by the sea objects. They imagined and drawn reconstructed original look of these objects first. They also photographed these objects and using enlarged through photocopying images created visions of things belonging to different cultures, civilisations and times.
