David Hockney - Year 6 - February 2020
In art this half term, the children have been focusing on David Hockney. We noticed that his work contained a range of vibrant colours which we aimed to recreate through the use of water colour and acrylics.
As our topic this half term is Brazil, we challenged the children to replicate a landscape which could be urban or rural. They began by sketching their pictures before moving on to water colours; further detail was added through the application of acrylics. Once they had evaluated and made improvements to their work, they then reduced it down in size and constructed their final image with emphasis on lines and drawing the eye into the picture.
Henry Moore - Year 5 - October 2019
In Art we have been looking at drawings and sculptures by Henry Moore, which he created during the Second World War. The children used the work by Henry Moore to inspire their own work and created images of underground tunnels using paint and oil pastels.
