Term 3 Week 2

Amber and Turquoise Class

This week our reception, year 1 and year 2 artists used their polystyrene printing plates from last week to create images using block printing ink. We got some great results! We learnt about different kinds of printing blocks and had a go with wooden blocks, rubber blocks, linocut plates and foam shapes.

 

Magenta & Violet Class

Our year 3 and 4 artists created backgrounds for their printed cityscapes from last week. We used wax resist techniques to portray clouds, then added a variegated wash using Brusho paint. We discussed warm and cool colours, using warm colours to show a sunset sky and cool colours to suggest a night time scene.

 

Emerald Class

Our year 5 and 6 artists continued with their typography projects. We drew out our designs onto craft foam then carefully cut the letters out. It took a lot of patience! We’ll be finishing them next week.

 

Maroon Class

In Maroon class we’re working on some drawing techniques. This week we experimented with tone and texture using a variety of media, including graphite, charcoal, wax resist and watercolour. The resulting drawing was full of energy!
