Today in Art we learnt how to use primary colours to make secondary colours. We learnt that red and blue make purple, yellow and blue make green and red and yellow make orange. We then practiced adding white and black to colours to see what happened. Finally, Miss Williams challenged us to find out which colours would mix to make peach, cream and brown. We thought it was great fun!
Today we learnt about different art that tribes living in the rainforest produce. We learnt that they use the materials of the rainforest to make different sorts of art. They use wood, feathers, body paint and leaves to decorate themselves and their houses. They also make things they can use like baskets and blowpipes.
We learnt they use clay from the ground to make coil pots then we practiced making our own. It was great fun and very messy!
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!
