Art and computing

08 Feb 2023

This week we have been very busy! Alongside our other subjects, we have had our art week where the focus was drawing and mark-making. The children experiemented with different mark-making tools before learning about a local artist, Lucy Pittaway. Lucy Pittaway creates landscapes, taking inspiration from the Yorkshire Dales. We used her work as inspiration, creating landscapes of our own.

After that, we had a second afternoon focusing on how we can show emotions and feelings through our art. We looked at the Mr Men and Little Miss books as inspiration. We discussed how the colours, facial expressions and much more show us the character's feelings. We went on to create a Mr Men or Little Miss of our own:

In computing with Miss Wray, we have been creating pictures on the computer. We learnt how to use a program clled 2Paint a picture then recreated pointillist art. This week we have explored surrealism and the eCollage function on "Pain which helps create a surrealist piece of art.

I hope you have a lovely half-term and a well-deserved rest!
