Year 3 have created their own collages, inspired by Aslan, one of the main characters from the novel, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. The children started off, by lightly sketching a basic outline of a lion’s face. They then looked for key shapes in the photograph to help guide their sketch. Once they had done this, the children outlined the face with marker pen. Following this, the children chose a range of materials and arranged them on the drawing to create a striking image of a lion. For the background, the children cut up coloured card and arranged them to create a mosaic.
The finished collages look fabulous and the children really enjoyed the process of making them.
