The Arts: Gothic Art

Weeks 13 and 14 of school we learned about Gothic Art using Layers of Learning, year 2 unit 8.

The boys made paint, chose things to use as paintbrushes, and painted with them. Cameron’s paint was made of chili powder, egg white, and cornstarch. Fritz’s was made of cranberries, egg yolk, and salt. Adrian’s was made of glitter, glue, and sand.
