Years 1 and 2
Years 1 and 2 have been looking at the artist Henri Rousseau and using his key themes to produce a final picture in his style.
Continuing with the animal themes years 1 and 2 have been looking at animals in more depth including animal prints. And using different media.
Shooting stars have been making animal prints using different media. They use string to make zebra stripes, sticks to make tiger stripes, shells to make giraffe spots and leaves to make leopard spots.
Year 1 and 2 have also been using lines to represent shape and outline. They have had a go at drawing a few animals using different drawing media including pencil, pastel and wax crayon.
In art, we research the art of the Beaker People. We studied their pottery and patterns, to then design and make our own with clay. We though hard about the tools that would give us the best finish to our patterns!
Year 4/5 used a variety of techniques including weaving and metal sculpting to make Iroquois dream catchers.
We sketched dream catchers using charcoal and drawing pencils.
We also sketched longhouses.
