Ephemeral Art, Puffins style!

As part of our Express Yourself topic, we have been exploring different emotions and feelings. We looked at Ephemeral Art and created our own pieces. We created two different compositions, the first brief was ‘Anger’ and the second was ‘Fear’. I think a few could rival Andy Goldsworthy. See for yourself!
