We are looking forward to sharing our incredible artwork with everyone at parents evening after half term.
This term we have been focusing on improving our pencil drawing of faces and recently we have looked at capturing different expressions. Here are some of our favourite pieces so far.
We transformed ourselves into woodland creatures using pictures and natural materials that we found around the school site.
We had a fantastic talk from Chris Riddell at the Cheltenham Literature Festival today. He spoke to us about what it was like to be both an illustrator and an author, including how drawing often helped him with inspirations for his books.
Today in art we focused on only painting what we could see from our perspective. It was great to look at how each of the paintings came out different at the end. It was great to see some fantastic use of colour after our lesson last week.
Today in art we investigated primary, secondary and tertiary colours and how we can use them to match colours of everyday items.
Today we created insect inspired lanterns out of willow, which we then covered our insect frames with tissue paper and plenty of glue. Tomorrow we will add our lights and sticks to hold them at the parade at Stroud Goodwill Evening on Friday. It was great to see a whole range of fantastic insects created, including a praying mantis, a ladybird, a number of wasps and several dragonflies.
