After School classes for Term 3 at Aeoncademy have begun. We have an exciting term planned ahead as the snapshot provided below of Term 3’s program indicates.
Mondays will explore shadow puppetry and move into the wonder world of printmaking, starting with the mono print.
Klimt Rolled Vase (Tuesdays)
Inspired by Klimt’s beautiful patterns we’ll decorate a vase (made by rolling a slab of clay and joining it to a base) with our own hand made clay stamps. These patterns will then be painted with underglaze colours and a clear glaze before firing. Once the pieces are fired we will paint the vase with gold paint (Klimt loved his gold paint) and wipe back to enhance the stampings.
Acrylic Paints (Wednesdays)
Julie Dowling is an indigenous artist from Western Australia, she is well known for her political paintings that often use a diverse range of materials like ochre and sequins. We will be looking at her vivid and narrative work and making our own stories.
Project 2: Nature Plaque, inspired by Nature and Rachel Dein (Tuesdays )
Rachel Dein is a contemporary UK artist whose work captures the ethereal qualities of plants Using the amazing ability of clay to create detailed impressions we will collect plants and objects to create an intricate relief image in a slab of clay using a plaster old technique.
Ceramic Grafitti on Thursdays
This term we will be looking at ceramics in public places. Bold and colourful or restrained and naturalistic, we will be trying many approaches!
Finally Fridays continue to be a fabulous mix of all the arts with a focus on a village installation to be unveiled at the open day and the construction of totem poles out of recycled materials.
