Art Facilitation 02.8

In this post I will show you about:
Making fantasy animals: make-believe animals, monsters or dinosaurs.

'Unspoken fears'

  • To explore the subject “what is scary?”
  • To develop fantasy/imagination and to express it in three dimensional terms
  • Stimulate discussion about imaginary or pretend creatures; although we know that they are not real we can make believe that they are real.  Talking about scary animals or people gives them an opportunity to speak about fears in a safe place.

Anything can be used. I used recycled material: the top of the milk bottle + handle as the head and a sturdy cardboard box was used as the body. The head and body are joined together by making a hole in the appropriate places and using a toilet roll to link the two pieces. We added string tails as well. My only cost was the glue, glitter glue and paint.

  • Milk bottles,
  •  boxes, 
  • toilet rolls, 
  • egg boxes,
  • string, 
  • wool, 
  • fluffy material, 
  • magazines, 
  • paint, glitter glue
  • glue.
