Today year 5 continued with their Art topic; studying the work of Claude Monet. They learnt about him as a person, how he liked to paint and how influential he was in the area of ‘Impressionism’. The children listed the 6 main ideas that define Impressionism and next week, they’ll have a go at creating a colour palette to demonstrate their understanding.
Our topic this year in Art is Claude Monet. The children were given a jigsaw of one of his paintings and had to assemble it to see just what the impressionist’s work was like. They are looking forward to creating their own colour palette this week and delving more into the artist’s life and work.
Year 5 have had a very enjoyable Art topic this term studying Monet. They have practised their sketching skills and applied all the painting techniques to produce some really lovely pieces of art. They finished with an evaluation of their work and assessed how their finished pieces could be Improved.
Year 5 have started their Art topic: Claude Monet. They studied the artist’s life history as well as his paintings and critiqued a chosen painting. They then worked with primary colours only, to mix a colour palette to match that of the natural world. I’m sure you’ll agree the results were incredible!
In the week, Year 5 Kestrels printed pictures of flowers, blossom and trees that we liked. During art today, we started painting the pictures in the style of Claude Monet, thinking carefully about colour and texture.
Some children started a lovely background wash to their picture, trying to add texture and depth to it using the paint.
Some children made an excellent start to their painting by adding the flowers and blossoms or trees onto their background.
In year 5 art we have been studying Claude Monet. We have experimented with mixing colours, looking closely at the tones that Monet used in his water lily paintings. Today we experimented with texture, using layers of tissue paper and glue to create depth and texture within the paint.
Yesterday, the children in year 5 wrote instructions for their ice cream dessert and designed and produced a poster and name card. They have all chosen their ingredients for their mouth-watering creation and are looking forward to it being tasted and judged tomorrow.
On Friday, the girls in year 5 got a visit from Turves Green Girl’s School. They told them all about life at secondary school and gave them a lesson in marbling. They also showed them how to use textiles and paints to make cards. The children really enjoyed it and can’t wait to go and visit the school this Friday.
