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.
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.
Year 6 have developed their understanding of World War II by studying some artists of the time. Paul Nash was one such influential artist. Through his art, the year 6 sketched and then used watercolours to capture the same feeling of the time by using similar colours in their own pieces.
