As part of our Curriculum afternoons each class is taught Art on Friday afternoons. This autumn term we are focussing on colour and have practised our colour mixing techniques before using our skills to create works of art linked to our class topics.
After mixing the primary colours to make secondary colours the children made shades of orange and pink to make a lighthouse sunset picture.
They then used orange, red and yellow tissue paper to create a firey flamey background for some pictures about the Great Fire of London.
After making colour wheels and learning how to make tints and shades of the three primary colours the children have created their own colours that they will use to make roman mosaics.
After making colour wheels and learning how to make tints and shades of the three primary colours the children explored watercolours and inks to create different effects and textures in shades of blue, pink and purple. They will use these to make some Antarctic sunset pictures.
