Over the past few weeks, P4 have been creating some Spring Japanese blossom art work. We discussed the Japanese ‘flower watching’ festival, Hanami and how blossom is a traditional art topic in Japan. We looked at the blossom at the end of our playground.
We then created backgrounds using tempera paints and water, let them dry then used a straw to blow black paint to make the branches. Once this had dried again, we mixed various shades of pink to create the blossom flowers.
