Year 1

Year 1 have been looking at landscapes this half term in art. They focused on the landscape paintings of Vincent Van Gogh. In particular , they looked at the Wheatfield with Crows painted in 1890. Next, they created their own interpretations of the painting. The children used a toothbrush and blue tones to create a textured sky just like Vincent Van Gogh. The wheatfield was painted using a plastic fork and yellow, green and brown tones. The paintings below show work in progress. Well done year 1!

Year 2

Year 2 have been learning about primary and secondary colours this half term. They used powder paint to mix different tones of colours and have really enjoyed this process. Their topic has been giants and so they thought carefully about creating a frozen sea with a giant whale.

They used their knowledge of colour mixing to create a frozen sea and sky . Next, they used splatter painting to create the sea foam and froth as the whale emerged from the water.They created an iceberg using torn paper and finally they added a whale and a little more paint splatter.

Year 3

Year 3 have been learning about mountain landscapes this half term. They used their sketchbooks really well to explore different mountain landscapes using a range of materials. Recently, after looking at the photographs of famous photographer Ansell Adams, they used charcoal and white chalk to create some very atmospheric drawings of their own mountain landscapes. Well done year 3!
