Well done Amelia J on your wonderful artwork! Mrs Calbreath and Miss Dainter are so proud of you!!
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.
In Art yesterday, year 5 worked with glue and tissue paper to create textures. They layered paint, glue and tissue to create a 3D effect.
Today, they started to sketch their drawings. They chose a nature themed picture and used light & dark to produce some rather impressive pieces of Art.
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.
Year 5 have started their new Art project this week. The children are learning how to create Art using digital media. They have been given a program to trial to see what effects that can come up with. Later in the week, they will be editing a photograph that they have taken themselves. I’m sure you’ll agree, the results are pretty impressive.
Year 5 are thoroughly enjoying their Art topic this term – creating country scenes. They have created different shades of Autumn colours, practised 3D effects and had a go at drawing trees by studying them out on the field.
They’re becoming proper little artists.
