In Art today we learnt about primary and secondary colours. We learnt that the primary colours can’t be made but can be used (along with black and white) to make many more colours.
We experimented for ourselves using the watercolours.
Today in Art we practiced a learning objective we have focused on before; drawing with texture and shading. Miss Williams taught us how to draw a polar bear focusing on breaking down the shapes. We then tried our own and added detail using lines and dots to add texture. Look at our photos to see how we got on.
This week we have been very busy preparing for our Healthy Restaurant tomorrow. In our Art lessons we have been learning about printing and we put this new skill to use by making printing tiles to print our own tablecloths. We think they look fabulous!
Today we explored printing as next week we are printing our own tablecloths for our healthy food restaurant. We experimented with how much paint to use and how to do patterns.
We think printing is fun!
In Art this week we have been learning how to draw and paint fruit. We have taken inspiration from Paul Cezanne and Guiseppe Arcimboldo to make our own Art. Look out for our work on display because it is fantastic!
In Art yesterday we learnt how to do a line drawing focusing on size and shape. Today we learnt how to add texture to our drawings by using lines, dots and shading. We explored different textures first and then drew some fruits that had different textures. We tried hard to use the different methods. Some of us even learnt about some new fruit we hadn’t seen before!
Our Little Masterchef display is finally finished in our classroom! We worked really hard on our portraits and made a frame from pasta. We think they look fantastic!
Today we had a wonderful day welcoming our new Toucans. We starter by sharing our news and things we were looking forward to. Our teachers were very impressed with how good we were at listening!
This afternoon we started some self-portraits for our masterchef gallery display. We started by having a close look at ourselves in the mirror. We learnt some skills we needed for drawing our faces then had a go ourselves. Some of us started to use pastels to colour them in. They are going to look fantastic when they are finished!
Today we finished our clay pots by painting them. We think they look wonderful!
Today we made clay coil pots, just like they do in the rainforest! We learnt a lot about how to roll and joining clay making ‘slip’. It was also great fun!
