Chinese Horse canvas

IMG_2402

5/6s have been painting horses on a canvas.

The two hard parts were drawing the horse and painting it carefully on the canvas.

Some of our success criteria were to keep the canvas background clean and white, choose and use an appropriate brush and be careful with the brush strokes, only use black and red and to have a go.

Emily.S had trouble on figuring out what horse to draw.  She drew a horse head and a full horse. Hayley drew a horse head around the moon and the horse character. We both like our drawings.

I think most people in the class were proud of their work, most of them haven’t drawn horses before and everyone created a canvas that looked like a horse on it 🙂

Year of the Horse Canvases 5/6H

IMG_2326In the past weeks the students in 5/6S have been learning how to draw and design their own horse. First we started off by drawing in our books then designing them onto a canvas.  Some of us had never drawn a horse before so we had a go trying our own ideas first.  We could only use black and red and white for the background. In term 4 we will be having an arts extravaganza and all of the drawings would be shown on display. Tegan-  My work was very hard to do because I didn’t know how to draw a horse but in the end I got it.  Annika-  I think all the canvases all together will look really cool because they are all the same colors. In the end everyone had fun and we were excited that we were finished.

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.
