Each department lays on an activity for the children not going on trips. We are linking art and RE, any ideas?

mosaic tiles.
depends on the relgion you are doing. but every religion has lots of art associated withit. jusst do something with that.

I thought of icons myself but was not sure how to do them, wanted something very modern and up to date. Perhaps drawing icons of their icons if that makes sense.

Islamic patterns? i.e. stuff which is geometric/no animals or people

I am open to any religion , they study with us the six world faiths.

icons - you could get sheets of MDP or something like that, paint with acrylic and use gold leaf?

Would have to ask the art department about what clay they have left. We had some but we used it all earlier in the year.

or small sturdy cardboard

islamic tiles - you could use potatoes

twinsetandpearls Sun 20-Jul-08 21:23:38

I could ask the tech department if they have anything.

twinsetandpearls Sun 20-Jul-08 21:24:01

I don;t get the potatoes

KatyMac Sun 20-Jul-08 21:24:02

Dp has said we don't we do icons of modern day saints.

twinsetandpearls Sun 20-Jul-08 21:26:57

I have some real icons at home I can bring in that someone bought me from russia.

the good samaritan story and then hands saying different ways to help each other?

morningpaper Sun 20-Jul-08 21:27:48

I was thinking of repetitive paterns with potato prints

but icons good, esp. if you have some

twinsetandpearls Sun 20-Jul-08 21:31:57

right we are doing the modern day saints icons. Head of department loves that idea. We do shrines already jemima which the kids love which is not too far away from your idea.

twinsetandpearls Sun 20-Jul-08 21:34:23

I like that idea windygales will pinch that for an actual lesson.

Any ideas if where I could get images on the net for inspiration from.

windygalestoday Sun 20-Jul-08 21:55:59

sorry twinny.....i just do it with younger children so we draw around hands.....hows your house sale going??

twinsetandpearls Sun 20-Jul-08 22:39:29

I meant images of the icons. We will just draw round hands, even big kids like that!

Gave up selling and have rented it out.
