Getting Arty in Autumn 2020

In reception the children have been exploring creating different textures, combining media to create new effects and constructing all through experimenting with colour and mixed materials to create lots of beautiful artwork.

Year 1 have been learning about animals and chose their favourite animal to paint. They researched the different parts of the body of animals and used their drawing skills to try to recreate an image of their favourite animal that they then painted.

In year 2, The children studied the artist Van gogh to inspire their work and looked carefully at the piece ‘Starry night’. They sketched their picture before painting thinking about making shades of colour and including dark and light tones. They have also looked at making watercolour painting and learning this new skill.
