Year 5

Term 1

Year 5 researched the work of ancient Greek artists and discussed the features that they could see in the artwork. They then had to design and make their own vases and another artefact of their choice, selecting appropriate tools for the job. They then learnt about light and shadow, form and space and did a series of drawings using drawing pencils, pens and charcoal.

Finally they looked at some artwork by the artist Jannis Kounellis Hirshhorn from 1980. They discussed how they could use their clay models to create something based on his work. They agreed to paint all the objects white and then worked in small groups to arrange their art as a display. They took photos of their artwork on the Ipads and we had a mini exhibition within our bubble.
