This week in art, Kestrels have been preparing and planning their paintings ready for next week.
Art – tints tones and shades.
During our art lesson this week, year 5 experimented with tints, tones and shades and how different amounts of black, white, and grey affected the original colour differently.
This term, Kestrels have been looking at the Pop Art Movement. They studied various artists and produced some pieces based on Roy Lichtenstein. The main focus for our topic was work by Takashi Murakami, a Japanese contemporary artist whose work is an intersection of pop culture, history and fine art. The children loved his styles and produced some stunning pieces, full of colour and incredible imagination. Excellent work Kestrels!
Our wonderful egg technology!
Mr Lo was super super proud of being part of Hollie’s award winning piece.
Kestrels have finally finished their artwork centered around their knowledge of The Bayeux tapestry. I’m sure you’ll agree, they have done a fine job. Mrs Calbreath is looking for somewhere around school to hang it.
This week, year 5 have been introduced to the artist Claude Monet. The children have been practicing mixing colours to create a colour palette inspired by the artist. Look at the work they have created!
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.
