Art and Design

We have been busy developing our sketching skills in Beech class.  We begun by focusing in first on exploring how to sketch an eye.  Have a look and compare our first attempts with our final attempts.  Can you spot the difference?

Using our sketching skills in the style of Charlie Mackesy.

We used the sketching and shading skills we have been developing to complete the other half of a face of a soldier from WW2. We enjoyed this activity whilst listening to music from the 1940s to inspire us.

We have been exploring the work of Paul Nash, who was an official war artist for WW1 and WW2.  We reflected on our own interpretations of some of his artwork and what messages we thought he wanted to convey through his art.  

We looked closely at Spitfire planes from WW2 and sketched different parts up close considering the shape and shading we would need. 

Next, we worked towards drawing a sketch of the whole plane.  Our next step is to create a Paul Nash inspired collage.  Keep your eyes peeled for our finished designs.

We have been exploring all about Ancient Greek pottery.  We learned how they were used for different functions and had many different designs.  We have tried out creating some of the geometric pattern designs that could often be found on them and zoomed in on different sections of the pots to explore their shape.  

After our sketching of a variety of Greek pots, we created our own coil pots using clay.  We enjoyed learning to use different clay techniques, including scoring and slipping.  

Our finished clay coil pot designs...

We looked closely at each other's artwork and gave some feedback for what we liked about each other's clay coil pots and what we thought went well.  

To celebrate the Queen's platinum jubilee, we have been exploring portraits of her from different decades of her long 70 year reign.  Some of us didn't actually recognise the Queen when she was younger!  We recreated some of the famous portraits of her.
