Art Week 2019 - 2020

The theme this year was `Take One Picture`. Each year group chose a picture from the gallery they were visiting or one of their year group artists and used this to inspire their work throughout the week. In addition to this, each class also created a flame for the Holocaust Memorial exhibition and we picked one to hopefully become part of a larger national display. We have also enjoyed visiting Art Galleries around London and using this to further inspire our artwork.  

We created a whole school tapestry showing each theme! 

 

Holocaust Memorial 75 Flames

To mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz - Birkenau, we took part in a project to mark the occasion. Each year group created a flame reflecting a theme or story from the Holocaust. 


Reception

Reception focused on work from Andy Goldsworthy and also asked children to `Take one Picture` of their family and friends from home.  

 

Year 1

Year 1 studied the Brazilian collage artist Beatriz Milhazes. Inspired by her work, they made their own group collages using oil pastels, paint (acrylic and poster), tissue and card.

 

Year 2

Year 2 were inspired by the painting ‘Cookmaid with Still life of Vegetables and Fruit’ by Nathaniel Bacon to create their own Healthy Art.They looked closely at different fruits and vegetables and did their own still life pictures and paintings as well as taking photographs of them recreating the scene. They looked closely at the inside of different fruits to create their own mono-prints. Andy Warhol was their stimulus for another piece where they were inspired by his bold, bright and contrasting colours.

 

Year 3

Year 3 looked at Abstract art focusing on the work of Henri Matisse and Wassily Kandinksy. They were inspired to create their own self-portraits, acrostic poems and 3D paper sculptures. Using Matisse's 'Snail' they creating their own insect art using paper cut-outs and using Wassily's 'Swinging' they created their own abstract paintings depicting different verbs. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Year 4

Inspired by their visit to the National Portrait Gallery, Year 4 created their own portraits using different techniques.

 


Year 5

For art week, Year 5 looked at 'Landscape by Moonlight' by Peter Paul Rubens. This was featured in one room of the National Gallery when they visited. The children used this piece as a stimulus to paint their own landscapes influenced by the use of shadow and light.

 

 

Year 6

Year 6 were inspired by the exhibition at the Tate Modern by Olafur Elliasson.
