This week children were busy carrying out their #Christmas themed #plans with their request to experiment with #printing techniques. For this we used #polystyrene #tiles to create #seasonal designs to produce #relief #prints using a limited #colour palette and #inkrollers, similar to the ever popular #linoprinting process. 

Again, some beautiful results. Amazing to see what can be achieved in less than an hour with 7 to 10 year olds who have never done this before!

 

 

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. 

 

This week children continued on our #Autumn #winter, #light and #Dark thene. Following last weeks #installationart, today we looked at #monoprinting and the work of #Lynda_Goldberg_artist exploring #printing techniques using last weeks leaves to create #relief #prints. Glorious use of colour and so much fun.

Last half term was all about #originsofart exploring #Egyptians #Romans #greeks finishing with extremely colourful #terracotta #clay #tiles. 

This half term will focus on #Autumn #winter, #light and #Dark with #observational #drawing #printmaking & festive crafts.
Today we looked at #installationart and the work of James Brunt @RFJamesUK using what nature had left on the ground, whilst sharing knowledge of leaf types, seeds, nuts, bark, the odd insect and #oldmansbeard!

Wk7 | THEME: Origins of Art | Painting Clay Tiles | Romans & Greeks 
Following on from the last few weeks producing a range of designs for #Greek #Roman pottery and mosaics.
This week we have painted our #terracotta #clay tiles. Some in a classic colour scheme, others bright & modern.
All beautiful.

 

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. 

Wk5 |THEME: Origins of Art | MOSAICS | Romans & Greeks  
This week we have explored #mosaic patterns. The children created designs for tiles using #graph paper limiting them to #squares using their designs from last week. We compared this technique to modern day aspects in the digital world such as #minecraft and #pixelart. These designs will become clay tiles using their designs over the next two weeks.

 

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.
