Term 6 Week 6

This week, our classes investigated the work of Los Angeles based artist Jen Stark. She uses various materials, including paper, wood, metal and paint, and her works often resemble organic, molecular, cloud-like structures.

You can find out more about Jen Stark’s work on her website.

Amber & Turquoise Class

Our reception, year 1 and year 2 artists worked on creating 2D and 3D patterns using a series of neon paper squares . We followed some step-by-step instructions to produce various folded structures, then experimented with the pieces to produce our own creations.

 

Magenta & Violet Class

Our year 3 and 4 artists looked in particular at the concentric forms that Jen Stark creates using many layers of coloured paper. We produced two pieces of work- one showing a layered mountain range, and another made by cutting an initial shape, sticking it onto a second piece of paper, then cutting around it again and repeating. It was fiddly work but the results were very effective!

 

Emerald Class

Our year 5 and 6 artists were inspired to create 2D and 3D artwork of their own, using coloured paper. We got some great results after experimenting with different techniques for joining and manipulating paper strips.
