The school art displays are a celebration of the cross-curricular links we develop with a variety of subjects. The current displays represent everything from history to geography and literacy. Can you find the link? Have a look!
Collage techniques in Reception Classes brought their animals to life. The texture of the items chosen added an additional focus for the pieces of work.
In recognition of the changing seasons, the year 1s made trees! They each created a collage to celebrate the differences within each season. By using a variety of materials on each tree, some lovely designs were displayed.
In year 1, colour mixing to create unique tones assisted in self-portrait design and development. Discussions around colour creation and assessment helped with the final product.
The year 2’s were busy mixing colours to create different values; lighter colours were tints and darker ones were hues. We then shared our work and discussed it using our new art vocabulary! Fabulous work year 2’s!
The year 3’s have been designing and creating a template for their clay pots before developing the clay model next week. Great work!
Using a variety of colours helped to develop year 3s’ own impressions of forms they were illustrating. Coloured pencils and watercolours aided in creating form and space.
Charcoal provided an additional element of texture for year 3 studying the Stone Age. Simple techniques of tracing their hands and then smudging their creations added an element of realism.
In year 4 used understanding of area to create mosaic patterns. We created a template with pencil first, before using square paper “tiles” to recreate the pattern on paper. Gorgeous designs!
