We’ve had a lovely first week back after the half term break! This term we’re focusing on printmaking- however, this week we called on our collage skills from last term to create collograph blocks. We’ll be producing prints from them next week!
Maroon & Turquoise Class
Our reception, year 1 and year 2 artists were inspired by the work of Matisse. We discussed the organic and geometric shapes we could see in Matisse’s work, and aimed to include both in our own versions.
Amber, Magenta & Violet Class
Our year 3 and 4 artists took their inspiration from the work of Kimmy Cantrell (see photos). We discussed how the faces were assembled in different layers, then had a go at creating our own characters by cutting shapes from thin card.
Jade & Emerald Class
Our year 5 and 6 artists investigated the human figure. We discussed proportions, warming up by drawing stick figures in different poses. We concentrated on representing the limbs proportionately, and showing where the main joints were. We then recreated one of the poses in cardboard.
