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

Busy Week Recap

Well we have had such a busy week this week we haven’t managed any student updates since monday…. so here’s a bit of an update on what we’ve been doing.

Prep students have started working on their artworks to be displayed at the Production later this term. We took their photos and they have been turning themselves into circus performers through use of collage and colouring. They are looking very cool so far. We have acrobats, jugglers, clowns and even a ringmaster 🙂 You’ll have to wait till after the production to see them on here though… I don’t want to ruin the surprise.

Year 1 and 2 students have started exploring simple batik techniques using chalk and oil pastels with cats as our subjects. We chose cats because they have lots of interesting shapes and patterns. We started by drawing a thick outline with chalk, then we coloured it all in with oil pastel making sure we didn’t go over the chalk. The last thing we did was use different surfaces to create texture through rubbings in the background. Next week we will add the food dye to give it the real batik look.

Year 3 and 4 students have been creating funky feet pictures incorporating Primary and Secondary colours and exploring a variety of patterns created using shape and line. they are colourful and fun and just the thing for this wintery, grey weather. We saw some excellent painting techniques this week.

Finally year 5 and 6 students have started on their year of the horse Chinese artworks. The plan for these is when completed, all the canvases will be set up in a line showing all the different horses drawn. The color scheme is red and black. I think it will look very impressive. So far all of the students have practised drawing horses. I’m so proud of them for giving it a go and wow we have some very impressive drawings so far.

To top it off the students have been working hard on props for the production. We had a very productive week with 2 sessions seeing 3 mirrors and a shoe box almost completed from scratch. Well done everyone.

Year 3/4 Funky Feet

No not smelly funky but awesome funky feet 🙂 The year 3/4s have been exploring Primary and Secondary colours and patterns through overlapping traced feet drawings. It was a bit of a ticklish procedure to trace around our feet, each artwork needed 6 feet 🙂 The students will blog their experiences soon, so look out for some colourful funky feet coming soon.
