Mountsorrel Eco Club 'The Wild in 3D'
Last night's Eco club, attended by very enthusiastic year 5's, saw us experiment with the concept of 3D art using old wildlife and garden magazines, chip trays, leftover acetate and plastic folders and glue. Each participant discussed the idea of background and foreground and decided on a sea, jungle or countryside theme. Then, images were cut and torn from the magazines and the entire inside of the chip tray was covered in the dense scenery chosen.
Then, we cut acetate to fit the front of the tray and carefully cut and glued on images to provide a foreground. Attaching this to the tray with tape, the images popped out creating that 'wow' factor that makes you so glad you are working in community art!!
