Paper Sandcastles

DSCF3034Beside the Seaside was a fun, creative and colourful summer project for little people aged 7-11. The children worked with me for a week taking part in holiday themed activities.

The children learned how to make their own sketchbooks out of a variety of found paper and material scraps. We also ran holiday drawing challenges and experimental sound drawing exercises using seaside soundscapes and weird sonic clips. We used oil pastels to make our own multi-coloured starfish and created 3D Paper sandcastle hats complete with turrets!

Paper Sandcastle Hats

The children created these paper sculptures using paper of different colours and textures, working together to carefully measure each others heads and make their 2D and 3D turrets and flags. The session involved design, decoration and construction skills and the results were fantastic.
