Year 6 enjoyed the beautiful sunshine in our Secret Garden. As part of our science habitats topic, we observed the flora and created botanical drawings 🌻🌿🌾
Class 4 are learning how to represent nature in our artwork this term.
For art this term, Year 6 have been looking at famous artists and answering the question ‘By studying other artists’ work, can you capture your own drawing of an animal?’ Mrs Lauderdale and Mrs Cairns have been extremely impressed with their pupils artistic skills and enthusiasm. Some excellent work has been produced. We have created in the style of Mondrian, Monet and Picasso. We hope you love our art!
Year 4 have been learning about the Russian artist who was thought to be the first abstract painter.
We have looked at his art and considered the techniques he used.
We then created our own versions of a Kandinsky piece.
Finally, we started to look at the different techniques he used using oil pastels.
This week Reception had a Learning Challenge afternoon. It was inspired by the story ‘Leaf Man’ and focused around using natural resources to make art.
The children took part in activities such as creating leaf pictures, dyeing cloth using berries, leaf rubbing and making transient art using things they found outside like sticks, leaves and stones. The children were able to access as many of the activities as they wanted and then we all met back together to share our work and discuss what we had done.
Here are a small group of children dyeing cloth using berries!
Lots of the children have been excited by the new Frozen film. We explored some pictures from the film and from real life frozen landscapes to investigate ‘cold’, ‘winter’, ‘frozen’ colours.
The children really impressed us at what they noticed, especially when they started to notice the shades of colours in the pictures.
We used our new knowledge to create our own large scale ‘frozen’ process art.
We worked in steps. building up the layers, colours, shade and embellishments. The children worked collaboratively to produce their art work, that would hang proudly in any art gallery.
