Here are some of the wonderful insect designs created by Year 7 students as part of the Refill program:
Taking inspiration from nature, young people at Miller created t-shirt designs by tracing and colouring insects using weird and wonderful colour choices.
As part of the Refill program, young people created some beautiful silhouettes by spraying food colouring around natural objects stuck to a page with blu-tack. Here are some of the finished artworks:
This week during Refill, Year 7 students experimented with Gelli Printing. They layered their artworks up with leaves, feathers and stencils. Here are the results:
Young artists at Miller Technology High have been busy this term experimenting with clay. Each young person created two clay artworks using natural objects to make intricate imprints into the surface.
Refill students created an artwork that explored the shift of the sky from day to night using a silhouette drawing and a rotating split pin background.
Students created a planet surface by imprinting shells and objects into a sand mould. The mould was then covered in plaster of Paris and set. The outcome was an extremely textured surface that looked and felt just like a rocky terrain.
Young people used their own star sign to create a DIY constellation projector using a paper cup and a torch. These created a beautiful starry night sky when we turned off the classroom lights and turned them on all at once.
Students created a series of light paintings exploring their ideas of space using coloured torches and slow shutter photography.
