We hadn’t published any of the Pop Art so here is some artwork from Tayiah, Ava and Jaime.

We enjoyed doing Pop Art we had to repeat the same picture but use different colours. Some of the artwork we looked at had tins of tomato soup, sneakers and famous people. I liked that we got to use lots of colours. Painting is one of my favourite activities in art.

Prep Printing Art

We introduced the idea of printing today using milk bottle lids as our stamp. It was interesting to hear the definitions that the students had of printing before we started. Most told me how you put a picture into a machine and it comes out the other side the same. A few said you can print from a computer too. It was a good start because we knew that printing means you can copy an image.

The first step for the students was to brush paint onto their lids, they experimented to find that you could get as many as four prints from the one application of paint. As they are working on being their own teacher and visible learners I encourage them to try out ideas and see what works for them.

It was a very successful session printing onto paper plates with 4 colours (red, blue, fluro yellow and black) which will then become clowns next week.

Grade 1/2AC Pop Art fun

We were really excited to see some of the Pop art examples on the computer, especially the modern versions of Michael Jackson and Star Wars. The Coca Cola can was very cool.

We drew pictures we had to draw 4 pictures but we couldn’t do them all different they had to be exactly the same. I did little flowers and Amity did turtles and Ella did flowers.

Next we coloured our pictures in except now we had to make them different by using different colours so they didn’t look the same anymore. Then we cut them out. After we had cut them out we stuck them onto the coloured paper we had painted last week.

I really liked drawing and colouring and drawing my Pop Art today – Amity

I liked colouring the pictures – Ella

My favourite part of Pop Art was colouring and drawing – Naomi.

We learnt that Pop Art used the same picture but different and bright colours. It was usually something popular that they drew.

Pop Art with Grade 1/2T

IMG_2423

Today we did Pop Art the colours  we chose were yellow,  blue,  green and red  I thought it was fun. – Sonny and Ryan

Today we used the paint to make a colourful square. If it was left plain it would be a boring piece of art. Jessi

I liked that Andy Warhol used lots of different colours on his tomato soup painting. He made a pattern with the soup tins.

I hadn’t heard about the artist Andy Warhol before.

I’m proud of my painting because I didn’t put too much paint on. – Arie

Pop Art 1/2S & 1/2FC

IMG_2376

Today we started looking at Andy Warhol and Pop Art. We looked at the Campbells Tomato Soup artwork. Some of us liked it and some of us didn’t. We had a good discussion about it all though.

We are doing our own Pop artworks. Today we folded a square of paper so we had 4 sections, then we painted each square a different colour. Some of us tried mixing colours too.

Some thoughts on the art work

I didn’t like the tomato soup painting because it’s something you see everyday, soup. It’s not very exciting. I don’t know why you would want to make soup an artwork – Rhys

I liked it because I love tomato soup – Shelby

I liked it because I think he did his best on it and it looks really good. Looks real. He used lots of colours- Jed

I think he made them look real, they look like soup – Darcy

It would be a really easy art work to make because you could just copy them on the computer- Kaine

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.

Year of the horse 5/6H

In term 3 this week we are focusing on drawing Chinese horses. After we practice drawing our horses we are going to paint them on a mini canvas. We are hoping to present them at the town hall on at the arts extravaganza this year. We all are very excited about showing our artwork to every one.
