In term 5 we have revisited printmaking, basing our lessons on famous Victorian artist: William Morris. To begin with, we learnt about Morris and his works, studying some of his wall paper designs and prints, and drawing them to enable us to get a good understanding of the shapes and patterns used within them. Next, we created our own printing blocks using cardboard and string, and used these to produce our own wallpaper designs! Next, we will move on to looking at mono printing, and use printing inks to achieve some more artwork.

In term three, we are developing our print making skills. First, we created printing blocks, using arctic animals as our inspiration. Then, we used different papers and materials to experiment with the printing process.
After printing, we moved on to developing our sculpture techniques. We looked at how the Inuit people carve artwork out of stone, and on to bone, and then applied this technique to a lump of clay - it was tricky to carve, and we had to resist the temptation to break it up and make each section of our arctic animals! Once they had dried, we painted them.

We started our art lessons this term with some work on creating tone. In our sketch books we experimented with different ways of creating tone using sketching pencils. Then, we produced some line drawings of a still life - helmets from WW2. Next week, we will develop these with tone.

After practicing drawing the helmets, we then used torches to create shadows, to allow us to add tone!

In our history lessons, we have been learning about the Blitz. We used this as inspiration for our art lessons, to help us to learn how to blend chalk pastels. Take a look at the results!

We have been learning about the propaganda posters of WW2 and the campaigns attached to them.Then, we used them for the inspiration for our art lessons: we began by copying some of them using pencils to create line drawings. Then, we challenged ourselves to use water colours to do the same, without drawing them with pencil first! The results were pretty impressive 🙂

In term 1, photography is our focus for our Art lessons. This week, we learnt how to take a successful photograph. We had to think about 5 top tips: Get in close, fill the frame, find a focal point, create an interesting composition and ensure the image is in focus.

We then took to the playground to take some photos that followed these rules.
