The Very Hungry Caterpillar

As part of the school-wide Artists as Illustrators unit in Visual Arts this term, the Preps have been looking at the picture story book The very hungry caterpillar By Eric Carle. Using acrylic paint, students created abstract paintings that they then cut up to form a caterpillar. The colour, movement, line of the brushstrokes and their use of positive and negative space was truly wonderful. Below are a few snaps of the process from start to finish (the butterflies are on their way!).
