In Year 2, we have been learning more about Alexander Calder's Circus. We have practiced sculpting with wire and also used clay to add shape to our creations.
In Year 1, we have been discussing the artwork of Vincent Van Gogh. We practiced mixing paints and creating our own unique pieces.
In Year 3, we delved into the art of Claes Oldenburg, discovering his iconic soft sculptures. We explored paper as a medium and experimented with folds and shapes to craft our own whimsical creations.
We have really enjoyed experimenting with photography this term. After inspiration from the work of David Hockney and David M. Bird, we created our own unique images. We have used macro lenses and fish-eye lenses to alter our photos. We have also tried photocollage and forced perspective to create some interesting artwork too. We will finish next week by creating our own thought-provoking final piece.
Year 2, have created some detailed sketches of sunflowers. They have used their observational skills to pick out minute details and begun using shading in different areas too.
Year 3 have been experimenting by printing with leaves after being inspired by the artist Bryan Nash Gill.
Year 6 have been using digital software to create abstract prints, which involve experimentation with colour, size and repetition.
Year 2 have been using a range of printing techniques to create single and multi-coloured prints.
Year 3 have been discussing and evaluating the artwork of Leonardo Da Vinci.
Over the past two weeks, we have been trying different printing techniques. We have used string to create repeating patterns and symmetrical designs. We have also tried different types of monoprint techniques by drawing into ink, tracing on paper over ink and masking to create blank spaces. In the next few weeks, we will create our own individual prints using a combination of these techniques.
