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.
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.
To celebrate International Dot Day we made a film last year. You will really notice the lack of social distancing! The children had great fun making their mark!
