Project: Mixed Media – Change of State
Participants: Year 4/5 pupils
Partnering with: Hyrstmount Junior
Artist: Fiona Goodwin
Science topic: States of Matter
To link with the States of Matter topic we have chosen to focus on grouping and comparing substances and materials according to their physical properties. We will conduct heating and cooling experiments with liquids, pigments and wax to see how their states change in response to different temperatures and heat sources, and make observational drawings to record our findings. We’ve got ideas about experimenting with different coloured pigments and liquids to see how they react on different surfaces such as blotting paper and fabric, which will give us the visual material for our final artwork – possibly a 3D installation.
