In keeping with our artist Andy Goldsworthy this term why not try your hand at this weeks Art Challenge:
Bark and leaf rubbings.
A classic outdoor activity that provides hours of fun. The traditional way is to lay paper over a tree trunk/leaves and rub a crayon length ways across the surface to show the texture underneath. It can lead to lovely conversations about symmetry or the types of plant. But another way is to use tin foil instead, simply lay the foil over the trunk/leaf and gently use a finger to apply pressure, rubbing the foil to reveal the texture underneath. Option to paint the foil afterwards too!
Don't forget to send in your photo's of what you have done.
