Class 2 have been really excited to start creating their wave paintings as part of our Coastline theme. We have researched how artists show waves, tried drawing our own waves and tried different painting techniques using sponges and brushes. Today we started creating our final piece of artwork, using all of our new skills!
In Art, we have been looking at how artists represent oceans and waves.
Using a variety of techniques including sketching, painting, stippling and overlaying, we created our own ocean themed artwork.
What talented artist we have!
Class 3 have learnt how artist view objects as shapes and then use the shapes to help them refine and define their pieces of work. Here are a few objects that they have drawn in our lesson today.
Class 1 have been using their knowledge of different pencil techniques to help them draw features of a building. The children looked carefully at the detail in each feature of the school building and had a go at drawing them.
Class Three had a wonderful time at forest school this week creating art in nature. Using the style of Andy Goldsworthy. They worked either individually, in pairs or small groups to create some super pieces of artwork.
In Art this week, we explored primary and secondary colours and completed our own colour wheels thinking carefully about which primary colours we need to mix together to make the secondary colours of orange, purple and green.
Class 2 have really enjoyed planning and making clay pots as part of our Ancient Greek topic - Gods and Mortals. We researched different shaped pots and decided which pattern or design we wanted to choose. Now we have made our pots using the coil technique and can't wait to paint them next week when they're dry!
Class 1 have been learning about Andy Goldsworthy as part of our topic Enchanted Woodland. They have been looking carefully at the form of different leaves and natural materials. They had a go at using clay to sculpt and mould, focusing on the fine details such as the veins in leaves and using tools carefully to replicate these.
