Spring Art

Henri Matisse was a French artist known for his use of colour and his original ideas. The children in 3rd and 4th class have explored the artwork of Matisse and created their own spring art.

Hedgehog Art

The children in the Junior Room have been exploring clay during Visual Art lessons this month. They had great fun making their own hedgehogs. The next project will be to make tealight holders which the children will design and decorate themselves.

 

Still Life Drawing

It was a beautiful afternoon so we decided to move outside for our art class. The children were asked to draw a still life using a pencil and concentrating on light and shade. A still life is a drawing or painting that focuses on still objects. The subject matter is inanimate and never moves, typically with a focus on household objects, flowers, or fruits. Still life drawing is a great way to practice creating shapes and building three-dimensional forms through shading techniques.
