Term 2 Week 7- The Finishing Touches

This week we all finished off our masterpieces!

Amber & Turquoise Class

Most of our reception and year 1 and 2 artists had finished their Monet-inspired acrylic paintings last week so this week we played some painting games! We created crazy monsters by throwing dice to determine how many of each body part we had to add to our monster. We took turns to suggest body parts- some of our monsters had four arms, five legs and six belly buttons!

Magenta & Violet Class

The year 3 and 4 artists used small brushes and cotton buds to add more detail to our paintings based on the work of Yvonne Coomber. We painted small circles within the larger circles we painted last week, using contrasting and complementary colours. We added some pearlised acrylic paint as a finishing touch to give our canvases a bit of sparkle! We were really pleased with how our paintings turned out.

Maroon & Emerald Class

This week the year 5 and 6 students used tiny brushes to add details to our Klimt-inspired Tree of Life paintings. Some of us chose an abstract approach, using Klimt’s painting to suggest ideas for patterns we could paint on our trees. Others decided to design motifs representing aspects of our lives, for example favourite sports, animals and hobbies. We used a combination of normal acrylic and pearlised acrylic to give our canvases a shimmering quality. They look great as a group!
