Maroon & Turquoise Class
Our reception, year 1 and year 2 artists discussed the work of sculptor Rachel Beach (see examples). We talked about her use of geometric shapes and bright colours, and how we could see lots of straight lines and angles. We painted pieces of wood and arranged them into 2D versions of her sculptures. Next week we’ll glue the pieces down to finish.
Amber, Magenta & Violet Class
Our year 3 and 4 artists worked on creating some fabulous papier mache bunnies! We started with a plastic bottle, and made a head by scrunching up a ball of newspaper. We fixed pie cleaners on for the ears, and then covered it all in strips of newspaper dipped in diluted PVA glue. Next week we’ll paint them!
Jade & Emerald Class
Our year 5 and 6 artists were inspired by the beautiful installations of Japanese artist Jacob Hashimoto (see photos). We created our own versions using willow withies and wet strength tissue paper. Next week we’ll add coloured patterns!
