3/4FJ Fancy Feet

IMG_2320

We have been working on fancy feet, it’s an artwork exploring pattern and colours. We used Primary colours to paint the feet but created Secondary colours where the colours overlapped. Before we could paint the feet we had to trace around them. we took our shoe off and had to put at least 6 feet on our page. After painting them we have outlined the feet and used black markers to create patterns in the background.

Prep Colour fun

IMG_2310Prep M had lots of fun today trying out new colours with paint.

We tried mixing colours today to try and see what we could make 🙂

We used the Primary colours and black and white.  We learnt that if you add too much black though it turns black. Black makes colours darker and white makes colours lighter.

I made purple by mixing red and blue, yellow and blue make green and I made pink by mixing red and white. I tried pink and brown together it made a dark pink. I used the colours to paint a person riding on a truck. Rishi

I made a messy painting. I mixed colours up and made dots. Some of the colours I mixed together were blue, red and white. Jack

I painted a unicorn. I mixed up red and white and painted the unicorn pink. Miah

I made a rainbow it had red, blue, pink, green, white, yellow and orange I mixed light blue. Kaydee

I mixed dark red I had to use black and red to make it. I used it to paint my robot. I also made a lighter black. Ethan

5/6H Year of the Horse canvas paintings

This term we have been working on painting little horses on small canvases. The colours that we were allowed to use include; blue, but only by itself, red and black. We were allowed to use red and black together on the canvas. You could write the character for horse in Chinese, [ma] on the canvas or the pinyin ma. You could also write ‘year of the horse’ or 2014 on the canvas as well as the picture of your horse. At the start we drew lots of pictures of horses on a piece of paper and the next week we chose which horse we liked best and drew it on a canvas. Then we painted it with the colours allowed and perfected it. We have had a great time doing this and we hope that the students, parents and teachers like the display at the Arts Extravaganza.
