The Red Class transform into 'The RED T-shirt Company!'

 

 

 

 

The Red Class transformed their classroom into a t-shirt factory, with the help of resident artist Shaun. The children went from planning and design, through to production in just one afternoon, making four t-shirts!

Planning and Design -

The children started by planning their ideas on paper. They drew blank t-shirts and experimented with different colours and patterns, helping them generate ideas. Here Damon is seen working hard on his colour techniques.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wax Resistance-

The children then drew their designs on plain white t-shirts using wax. They understood that once their designs were painted on, the wax lines would be melted to create plain white lines.

Painting-

Once their wax outline was complete, the children painted their t-shirts drawing from their ideas.... James and Dane, the artist's at work!

Drying-

The children used hairdryers to speed up the paint drying process. James is seen concentrating here, ensuring the wax does not begin to melt.

Melting-

Once the paint was dry, the children melted the max with an iron...
