Mixed Media with Recycled Materials (P4)

Pupils learnt techniques of Mixed Media using recycled materials to compose Artwork on Nature. They have applied compositional techniques such as ‘Overlapping’, ‘Repetition’ and ‘Rhythm’ in portraying visuals of Nature. Subjects of flora and greenery were formed with scrap-materials and found objects such as strings, textile/paper remnants, packaging materials etc.
