Room Five Make Mosaics – Aisling’s Class




Thursdays are special days in our room because we get to experiment with our art skills!
Today we made flower mosaics using clay, beads, dyed beans and chickpeas.IMG_1654

First we kneaded the clay and flattened it.
Then we used plastic pots to cut round circles of clay.
Next we drew our flower shape in the clay using pencils.
Finally we pressed a selection of dried beans and beads into the clay.
Take a look at the final product!

We had a little clay left over so we made even more wonderful creations using our imaginations and our fine motor skills!
