Art and Design

Year 6 have been creating collages inspired by the work of the famous artist Gustav Klimt.

Year 3 have begun to make their bowls this week. We had to clingfilm some plastic bowls, then spread PVA glue all over then before sticking strips of paper all around. This is our base. Over the next week or so, we will add more layers of paper to the bowls. Once they are sufficiently strong, we can paint them using our own designs based upon the work of Howard Hodgekin . It was a bit messy but good fun!

Inspired by the novels of Cressida Cowell Year 4 have been making their own dragon eyes using clay and acrylic paints.

Year 2 have been working with textiles and learning how to weave using a simple loom.

The reception children have been doing some observational painting using watercolours.

Year 4 have had a wonderful afternoon making 3D sculptures based on the artwork of Michael Brennand-Wood. He is known for creating layers in his work, so we used natural objects to make 3D art pieces with layers.

Y2 computer art, inspired by Andy Warhol and his style of 'Pop Art'.

Y2 have used all of their new computer skills to create their own masterpiece. They each selected a subject and 2 artists to incorporate into their work!

Year 3 have been looking at the artist Kandinsky, who created pictures by using concentric circles. They used this as inspiration for their own artwork.

Year 3 have focused their work on drawing and have been exploring line and pattern. After looking at the concentric circle work of Kandinsky, the children have explored patterns within lace then created their own intricate lace drawings.

Year 4 had a lovely afternoon learning about linear lines and the process of mono printing.

Y2 have been creating their own impressionist art work on the ipads in computing today. Then we have made our own handprint pirates linked to our class text Pirates Love Underpants

The children in 5B have been creating images of the moon in ART this afternoon, relating closely to our class novel Cosmic! They used a pencil and compass to draw the outline of a moon on black card before starting to shade and blend with chalk. They then used white paint to highlight key areas and black paint to enhance detail.

Year 6 have been studying the work of Gustav Klimt. They used his piece "Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer" as their inspiration. They used magnifying glasses to look more closely at the patterns he had used and then sketched and shaded their patterns. They then used collage to build up the layers of the pattern of their original sketch.

2H have worked together to create a whole class version of The Snail by Mattise. We explored primary colours and then experimented with mixing them to make the secondary colours. Our creation is the same size as the one that Matisse made and that now hangs in the Tate Modern in London. It is 288x287cm.

Year 2 have been exploring the work of Henri Mattise. Today we have used cut and ripped pieces of paper to create our own spiral versions of 'The Snail.'

Year 2 have been creating winter pictures in Art using some of the artistic styles that they have looked at.

Class 3MF have been using their observational skills to sketch the Iron Man, who is the main character in their class novel. They used a range of materials, including chalk, pastels, crayons and felt-tip pens, to create some fantastic pictures.

Year 4 have looked at the local coal miner and artist Norman Cornish . The children were inspired by his work and created their very own colliery charcoal pictures .

Children in Years 3 and 4 have been exploring collage within their 'Black Gold' Mining topic.

Nursery have loved telling the teachers and their friends all about the fireworks they have seen. We talked about who went with us and what colours we saw in the sky when the fireworks were on. This inspired Nursery to make some beautiful pictures of fireworks!

Our Reception children had great fun exploring colour and creating vibrant firework art.

5B have been investigating shades of green from the rainforest, working towards our key task for this term creating a cross-sectional rainforest model in a shoebox.

Children in Year 3/4 have used oil pastels and collage materials to create Hamlet, a main character in the Firework-maker's Daughter. They are very proud of their art work!

Year 3 have been looking at the artist Andy Goldworthy in preparation for our visit to Seaham Beach. We decided to look at this artist because he uses objects he finds in nature to create beautiful sculptures. We went outside to make our own sculptures using the natural materials around us. We look forward to making similar sculptures from materials found at the beach
