With links to their Geography project, Year 2 have been exploring relief printing and have created their own repeat patterns inspired by the work of Indonesian artist John Martono, traditional printing techniques and the seas and marine life of Indonesia. The children have used their observational skills to draw from photographs and they have explored waves shapes from moving image. The children used their drawings when designing and making their own cardboard printing plates; these were handprinted four times over two weeks using complementary colours. The pupils repeated and presented their patterns and worked independently throughout the project.


These are super - well done Year 2! This was a hands-on project - special thanks goes out to Mrs Scott, Mrs Upton and Mrs Hart.
