This term year 1 have been experimenting with different materials. They spent several weeks creating lots of different papers using wax resist, poster paints and printing. They then had to cut squares and rectangles out of their paper to create fields which were used to create a farm scene. Finally they had to draw a farmhouse and do some other drawings of their choice to complete them. As you can see, they were very proud of their work!
Ash Class have been learning about ‘Animals’ this term and as part of their artwork were challenged to think about being ‘Art Rebels’ for a competition that we are entering. We looked at the work of digital artist Arne Fredriksen who creates art by joining two photos of different animals together.
We looked at some pictures of animals and designed some hybrid animals of our own. We had a ‘Drabbit’ (a cross between a deer and a rabbit), a ‘Cowl’ (a cat and an owl), an ‘Owlat’ (an owl and a cat) and a ‘Chabbit’ (a rabbit and a chick) as well as many other interesting names!
The children then created large oil pastel drawings of their animals. Finally they were challenged to use their knowledge of complementary colours to create backgrounds which would make their animals stand out. We think you’ll agree that they did a very good job!
