The foundation students have been working on filling in their circle prints using the primary colours. They firstly had to fill in the circles they printed with black using the primary colours then they were allowed to mix the primary colours to make the secondary colours. They look so striking!
The year 1/2 students have been focusing their learning on the art element of colour with specific focus on warm and cool colours. Students had to draw a self portrait using the technique of arts attic drawing. This technique was inspired by the artist Joan Miro who would practise this technique to help him to push the boundaries in his artworks. The rules of automatic drawing are that once your pencil has begun to make a line drawing on the surface it must not be removed until you are finished. The students had a go at this technique when drawing a self portrait. They then had to fill in the spaces using either warm or cool colours.
Students had had to then create a background using the opposit colours to what they used to paint their portrait. A warm portrait had to sit on a cool background and vice verse. The backgrounds had to be painted using a sponge to create a different effect. These works of art look fantastic. You can see them on the walls around the school.
The year 3/4 students are beginning to finish their Still Life painting and mosaic tiling pieces.
They look fantastic. Students have been adding detail into their pieces using black fine liners to add fine lines and outline objects. They look fantastic and I can’t wait to see them when they are mounted and labelled.
Here is a sneak peak.
