After School Clubs
Mr Postle, Mr Kelly, Mr Warraich, Mrs Lythe, Mrs O'Brien, Mrs Beall and Mrs Dewey have some amazing after school clubs running in school. Have you signed up for a club? The clubs are free to our children and offer a great opportunity to learn new skills and techniques and they are lots of fun!
This week children were very busy turning their #Christmas themed #illustrations into #professional looking #greetingcards to give to #family and #friends. We also experimented with bright coloured #inks on #watercolour paper adding #saltcyrstals to give them a crunchy wintry texture. #handmadeby
This week children followed colourful plans to create their #Christmas #craft options. Today was the start of #Christmascard designs using #charcoal #watercolours and splattered #ink with the theme of wintry scenes.
Last half term was all about #originsofart exploring #Egyptians #Romans #greeks finishing with extremely colourful #terracotta #clay #tiles.
Wk6 |THEME: Origins of Art | Clay Tiles | Romans & Greeks
Following on from last 2 weeks experiments with surface patterns on #Greek #Roman pottery and mosaics.
This week we have used #terracotta #clay to make themed tiles following our designs from the past 2 weeks. Next week we shall be painting theme in a classic colour scheme.
THEME: Origins of Art | Surface Patterns | Romans & Greeks - This week we have explored the surface patterns that appear on #Greek #Roman pottery. The children created designs for tiles using repeat motifs for borders and historical scenes for storytelling as the main design, using pencil, water colour & oil pastels. These designs will later become clay tiles using their designs over the next few weeks.
THEME: Origins of Art | Early Writing | Egyptian Hieroglyphics - Children explored early forms of written language with #Egyptian #hieroglyphics. They used the symbols to spell out their name and then explored simple story telling with familiar symbols, using pencil & pastel crayons in earthy colours applying limited colour like the Egyptians.
Today was learning about trees and creating them in Black in White, using soft pencils, graphite, charcoal and chalk...with a bit of pastel for good measure.
THEME: Origins of Art | Visual Language - Children discussed and explored the origins of art and early forms of visual communication. They used gritty pastels to create the texture of cave walls, then used charcoal & oil pastels to create signature hand prints filled with symbols to tell stories about the lives of prehistoric cave people. #parietalart #paleolithicart #neanderthalart
At Art Club September 2019 the focus was 'Getting2KnowU'. Children were drawing themselves, adding detail with hair, nose, eyes, mouth, ears, arms legs, hands, clothes, glasses etc. Exploring SHAPES - square, triangle, circle, stars, pentagon.
Bootcamp helps children engage in activities that they may not ordinarily do, it is exciting for children and strives to promote soft skills rather than just the technical skills.
Excellent turnout at Art Club this week. Today was learning about the structure of our faces - rules of thirds. Then creating self portraits in the styles of the old masters with frames & signatures, using coloured pencils & water colours.
Art class was a storming success, the children were very creative and really enjoyed learning new art styles and forms
April 2019 and Grimes Dyke started their first Boot camp! We intend to improve skills, coordination, balance, form and fitness.
