Looking through Sunglasses at Animal print

Designing our own pair of cool sunglasses, and creating animal print at the back....we took care that the black in the animal print (ladybird spots, zebra and tiger stripes, bee stripes, cow and Dalmation spots....) is visible through the black paper itself!

Designing tiles fit for cool dogs!

This was time (and energy) consuming, however the result is worth it! After splitting the page in squares, the children filled up each square (tiles) in different patterns, details, flags, colours...some squares also has a scene or an episode from the child's own life depicted in them! Amidst all these, a gorgeous colourful dog takes form!

Bottle top Printing on T-Shirts

It was fun creating our own designer T-Shirts...there ain't one just like it on the entire planet, cos we made them ourselves! The range includes pretty flowers, lovely hearts, beautiful butterflies, cute caterpillars, wacky patterns and groovy initials...some even come with fringed sleeves!

Pressing bottle tops on the T-Shirt's hem...the trick is in the detail!

Creating flowers using bottle tops, a pop-sickle edge for the stalk...and some fingers (naturally!)

Jazzing up an old T-Shirt...a cute caterpillar goes up the neckline

Inky drawings of a Secret Garden

We got inspired by the lovely and intricate drawings created with just a black pen- drawings of flowers, dragonflies and other insects, leaves, twigs, trees, pretty gazebos and lots of other detailed items one finds in a garden. The children were encouraged to add their own details and patterns, and also to zoom into a particular area of the whole picture.

Here is what they look like now...more details and work to be continued next week!
