Term 5 Week 5

This week we worked on a typography project!

Maroon and Turquoise Class

Our reception, year 1 and year 2 artists investigated different forms of hand lettering and practised writing the initial of their name in a variety of ways. We then produced our initial as a layered collage, incorporating patterns made using Posca pens. The results looked great!


Amber, Magenta & Violet Class

Our year 3 and 4 artists created a typographical design using their names. We practised writing our names in different styles, inspired by examples of hand lettering. We drew some wavy lines across our page, then fit our names between the lines to create an interesting layout. We went over the pencil lines in marker pen before adding Brusho colour. The designs were really colourful!


Jade & Emerald Class

Our year 5 and 6 artists spent some time finishing their mythical creatures from last week. We used soft pastel, blending colours together to create different textures. 

We then created a piece of typography work- some of us chose to work with a list of friends, and others chose words that described us or inspired us.


Cyan & Indigo Class

Our year 7-11 artists completed their lino printmaking project this week. We continued with our experiments in colour, and also tried reduction printing, where areas of the printing plate are taken out and another layer of ink printed over the top of the first layer. The results looked lovely!
