One of our favourite sculpture artists, here at St Nichs, is Darrell Wakelam - he makes AMAZING sculptures using only a pair of scissors, a roll of tape and the contents of his recycling bin!
Follow the link to the 'downloads' area of his website and you will find instructions for making 50 of his #ArtJumpstart sculptures. We've really enjoyed having a go at some of these in school so why not try it at home with your families too?
So, what is it? Transient art is simply art without glue! Non-permanent art that is process orientated with no expectations. It can be small-scale or large-scale and individual or collaborative.
Above are a few ideas, but the fun of Transient Art is that you can use anything you have. It could be blankets, scarves, jewellery, your toys. Just arrange them on the floor to make a pattern or a picture. Then move things around to make something that looks totally different.
Check out the Mr Maker page for instructions on things to make! There are some really simple things that you could have a go at together or challenge your child to have a go themselves!
Grow your own rainbow
All you need is some kitchen roll, some coloured felt pens and two bowls of water. Colour in each end of your 'rainbow' with strips of different colours. When finished place each end into some warm water and sit back and watch your rainbow grow.
