This term year 6 have been busy producing art based on the work of the artist William Morris. They researched the main themes of his work and then had to design wallpaper based around the features of his work. They had to consider if they would like to put a modern twist on their design or keep it more traditional. Finally they had a go at creating a 3D picture incorporating their wallpaper into the room of a house and then evaluated their work. We think they all did an excellent job. Well done Year 6!
Year 6 have been learning about World War 1. They were challenged to produce a piece of work based on WW1 that they can enter into the Turner Contemporary’s ‘Art Rebels’ Competition. They looked at artists who experienced World War 1 themselves and then had to plan their own WW1 scene for a painting. Once their paintings were completed they then sliced up their artwork and looked at different compositions for it, finally sticking them back together in a different way. Some of the children asked if they could weave their work back together and so worked on this technique instead. They produced some very interesting works of art!
