This half term, the children are studying Dave White. They have learnt facts about him as an artist, have studied a variety of his own creations of animals and have all been extremely impressed and inspired by his incredible and unique artwork. The children have practised some excellent drawing skills in their sketchbooks and are about to begin creating their own drawing of a chosen animal. We are extremely excited to share that Dave White will be participating in a live Zoom call to the children in order to evaluate their work together soon! A very exciting and incredible opportunity and we look forward to sharing this with you!
Sutton Hoo Helmets
In Autumn 2, we studied Darrell Wakelam. We looked at a variety of his sculptures and evaluated what we liked and didn’t like so much about his work. Then, it was time to become sculptors ourselves. First, we used a balloon as the base shape for our helmet and used papier mâché to create the first layer of our Sutton Hoo helmet. Then, we added attachments and built up layers to build the strength of our helmet up. Finally, we painted the helmets ensuring that the detail was painted in a contrasting colour. We are very happy with how they turned out.
Bob Ross – Mountains
In order to link in nicely with our Geography topic, we have continued to look at mountains but from a different art perspective. We have studied Bob Ross and have learnt some facts about him and looked more in depth as his creations. We were incredibly impressed by his painting skills and his ability to create such a calm painting environment whilst producing realistic looking ‘happy little trees and clouds’. Luckily for us, we had an extra special visitor come to the school (Miss Cornish’s Grandad) who taught us how to use different brush techniques to help us with our acrylic mountain landscape paintings. After completing our skill practise, we completed our final piece and are incredibly amazed and proud of ourselves. The children’s work was phenomenal and we are incredibly proud of each and every one of them! Well done, Guppies and Mackerels!
Computer Art – Edvard Munch ‘The Scream’
This half term, we have learnt about Edvard Munch and his incredibly famous (and expensive) creation of ‘The Scream’. After learning a little more about him as an artist, the children found out some more key facts about the well-known art work and had a go at using oil pastels to re-create the background. Soon, the children will be using their Art and ICT skills to greenscreen themselves onto the front of their work whilst posing in the famous pose. They will use ICT skills to edit this independently. Their backgrounds turned out fantastically well and we are extremely excited to see the finished result!
