Children as Artists
Press Printing in Reception
The Reception children have explored some simple printing techniques inspired by their theme ‘Once upon a Crime’. They have used polystyrene tiles to trace and transfer their Gingerbread motif and worked with different types of line to add pattern and simple, yet effective detail. The sequence of learning made mathematical links as the children worked with warm and cold colours to create bold repeated patterns.
The artists in year 1 and 2 have been busy creating mixed-media self portraits. They have created their own backgrounds in the style of Vincent van Gogh and explored a variety of collage, drawing and painting skills to achieve their final piece.
Year 3 and 4 have been getting creative with watercolour and acrylic paint to produce some vibrant seascapes in the style of J.M.W. Turner.
Anglo Saxon Observation Drawings
Artists in Year 5 and 6 have been developing their drawing skills to create some outstanding tonal drawings of Anglo Saxon artefacts. They have worked hard to use tone, line, texture and shape within their drawings effectively.
Pop Art Superhero’s
Reception have been inspired by Andy Warhol and created their own Pop Art Superhero painting. They have talked about what they like and dislike about the artists work and used their colour mixing skills to create their own colour palette using primary colours. Their finished pieces are just amazing!
