Thursday afternoons here are Performance Arts afternoons where the Upper School all go to music, art, drama, DT or ICT and work towards a joint project. As this term is so short we have just been given a title and then free reign to produce something to be shown at end-of-term assembly.
The theme is Arts Around the World and each Year Group has different continents to focus on. i’m working with Year 6 who have Europe and Year 8 who have Asia.
The project the children have been working on involved them collecting images of paintings by artists from their allocated region (http://www.artcyclopedia.com/nationalities). They then used these images to produce collages in Photoshop using the Clone Stamp tool. We will then put these images together to produce a slideshow and today we used Aviary’s Myna (http://aviary.com/launch/myna ) to create soundtracks for their slideshows.
Next week we will put the slideshows together and try and make the images fit the music. Hopefully by this time next week I will be able to load up their videos.
