Year 4

Term 1

This term, Year 4 have been learning about The Vikings.

In art we looked at the work of Winslow Homer and experimented with brush techniques to achieve different effects for the sea. This included dragging a stick through wet paint, wax resist with water colour, flicking paint and sprinkling powder paint onto wet paper. We were given the challenge to decorate four different sheets of paper using a mixture of these techniques. We then had to paint a sky for the background, thinking about the type of weather/atmosphere we wanted to portray. Finally we made Viking ships out of coloured paper and then made collages using our work.
