Term 3 Week 6

Maroon & Turquoise Class

Our reception, year 1 and year 2 artists swapped projects with our year 3 and 4 students this week! It was our turn to create some beautiful forests to showcase our markmaking and collage skills. We invented some lovely patterns!


Amber, Magenta & Violet Class

It was the turn of our year 3 and 4 artists to work on collages inspired by Paul Klee’s ‘Chateau et Soleil’. As well as using the precut squares and triangles, we used scissors to cut smaller shapes in order to create more intricate and detailed designs.


Jade & Emerald Class

Our year 5 and 6 artists investigated tonal value this week. We warmed up by completing tone activities, using graphite to achieve a variety of tones through shading, hatching and cross hatching. The students were then challenged to create a collage using newspaper, with the aim of achieving a variety of tone in their piece. 

Unfortunately Ellie forgot to take photos… here are some pieces we were using a inspiration though 🙂
