Update from Kieran Young 5 yrs 7mths Graduate of St AndrewsEpsom ECC
When Kieran was at St AndrewsEpsom ECC he was totally fascinated by trains. He knew all about Thomas the Tank engine and his friends and drew them at every opportunity. When everyone else was doing screenprints about kiwi - he was doing Rosie the engine!
Now that he's a school boy he's moved onto cars - Lightening McQueen and his cohorts! Thanks for sharing your drawings with us Kieran.
As you scroll through these screen prints if you look carefully you can find elements of the Samoan fale the high curved roof to allow air to circulate and create a cool atmosphere, the posts holding the roof up, and if you're lucky you might spot a raised floor here and there.
Keep your eye open for some roofs decorated with tropical flowers too.
These screen prints were created by children age 2, 3, and 4.
The screen prints were created by making stencils out of observational drawings of small wooden fales.
Most of the children chose to do two layers of paint - sometime registering the stencils perfectly, sometimes choosing deliberately not to.
The art works were finished with adding details in black, silver or gold pens. They look great in real life!
