Many of our class displays are currently focusing on the “seven habits” we have been practising. Have a look at some of the ideas so far.
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.
We have been learning about the artist Paul Klee, who is famous for his castle artwork. Using him as our inspiration, we sketched a castle using a pencil and drew a variety of 2D shapes inside the outline. We then used pastels to complete our outwork. We are extremely proud of our creations.
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!
