We knew that we needed to try a range of different artists styles before perfecting one style for sharing at our Celebration of Learning where parents and visitors are coming together to see our art.
Students who love maths found that shapes, angles, areas, measurements, and equations can create unique art forms. Like the shapes in Wassily Kandinsky's abstract artwork we created our own using geometric and organic shapes.
It is important to be able to read and measure millilitres correctly. Using eye droppers with millilitre measurements and a cap measurement of 5ml to measure the volume of colours. Students chose a selection of primary colours, and adding white and black, to create different tones. This was for the purpose of creating original colours to use in our art work. Setting to work, on the recipes for our colour creations was our first step.
Students learnt about different artists such as the Impressionist, Claude Monet and had fun creating their impressionism pieces of art.
By exploring pop art students turned onomatopoeia into art pieces. Onomatopoeia are words you can hear and see that make an impact. Students took inspiration from the pop artists and how they had used words within their work.
Creating art was hard work with a rewarding end product, resulting in 3D animal sculptures that had depth and details using single pieces of wire. Students found the manipulation of the wire challenge and needed support to achieve the end result.
