5/6 Students have been exploring the use of paint to create movement in their artworks. Inspired by the artist Vasily Kandinsky students collected photographs of different flowers to create a collage. Using the colours of the flowers as inspiration the students then painted a background for their collage. The brushstrokes used to paint the background give the appearance of movement around the flowers.
Students in 3/4 & 5/6 have been learning about the abstract artist Vasily Kandinsky. we created different artworks inspired by the artist using the techniques of collage, painting and textiles. To introduce the artist to students we read the book The Noisy Paintbox by Barb Rosenstock. You can listen to the story here:
The grade 5/6 students used the characters from the much loved picture story book ‘ Where the wild things are’ by Maurice Sendak to create and design their own character. They used the clay to make the characters. Here are some without the glaze. Next term we’ll be glazing, bringing them alive with colour.
