Getting Batiked

After we finished our practice batiking round, Grade 9 Art Students then were challenged to develop their own composition.

I gave them 3 options…. to my surprise, most students chose Option 3 – choosing an artist and developing an original composition (insert smiling Art Teacher)

 

Having experience with the full cycle of the batik process during their practice rounds, students were confident to get started on their own works.  From drawing their compositions, stretching their own boards, waxing their outlines and finally dying with colour…..look at them go!
