Art

At Sudbury Primary, we are very fortunate to have a Specialist Art Teacher and a well-equipped Art room.

 

Art is a practical, and creative subject. Through their active participation pupils learn to explore their imagination, generate ideas, acquire skills and apply judgement. They learn about the materials and techniques they use and about the world of art, craft and design, recognising the achievements of artists, designers and craftspeople from many different times and cultures.

 

Art is a subject that gives pupils the opportunity to express ideas attitudes and values. It is a great means of communication and it develops and encourages critical and creative thinking. As such it lends itself readily to enriching, extending and consolidating learning in a variety of curriculum contexts. The subject
often contributes to cross-curricular school themes and to various events and activities in the school calendar.

Year 2 were learning about the author Roald Dahl, so naturally we looked at the work of the fabulous illustrator, Quentin Blake as inspiration.

 

 

The children first made a tissue paper collage for the background to their pictures before drawing characters in the style of Quentin Blake. The result really brightens up the Year 2 corridor.

 

Year 3 were focusing on colour. They looked at the life and works of Pop artists, including Andy Warhol.

Then, using clay and poster paints, the children made these impressive pop art self-portrait tiles.

 

 

Year 4 were learning about pattern. They discussed, What is a pattern? Where do we see patterns? The children then sourced and studied patterns before they designed and printed their own using block printing ink.

 

 

Year 5 were focusing on space whilst learning how to successfully draw objects in a still life. Using modern day objects that interested the children, they picked their favourite still life and used the techniques learnt to produce these lovely pictures.

 

The children choose their materials from pencil, charcoal, oil pastels, water colours, felt tips and chalk.

 

 

Year 6’s were focusing on line whilst learning how to create one-point perspective pictures. First we looked at the famous example, Leonardo di Vinci’s ‘The Last Supper’. Then we learnt the language and techniques used to create the illusion of depth.

 

The children chose their own pictures and materials to create these beautiful artworks.

 

 

Spring Term 1- 2016

What a brilliant start to 2016! The art room has been a hive of activity, below are some of the fantastic artworks that our very talented children produced;

 

Year 1 were focusing on colour, specifically Hot and Colour colours. They created these beautiful pictures using water colours and printing ink.

 

 

Year 2 were learning about the artist Vincent van Gogh. They used oil pastels and collage to create these beautiful pictures inspired by Vincent van Gogh’s ‘Sunflowers’.

 

 

And if that wasn’t amazing enough they worked as a year group, collecting hundreds of bottle tops, as part of their focus on recycling and sustainability, and created this beautiful interpretation of Vincent van Gogh’s ‘Starry, Starry Night’.

 

 

Year 3 were focusing on line. They looked at the life and works of American artist Georgia O’Keeffe, before learning the skill of zen-doodling. They worked together to make these wonderful flowers using pen and ink and poster paints.

 

 

Year 4 were focusing on shape. They created fun life-sized Keith Haring paintings that are now scaling the KS2 corridors.

 

 

They also brought in recycled glass bottles as part of our whole school topic, recycling and sustainability and produced these beautiful ornamental painted bottles, decorated with colourful Keith Haring style figures.

 

 

Year 5 were focusing on form. They were learning about English artist L.S. Lowry. They used mono-line printing and watercolours to create their own Lowry inspired works of art. To further extend the idea of form,  they used recycled boxes to make their own little houses before working together to make a village sculpture.

 

 

Year 6 focus was texture. They used charcoals to create the illusion of texture when sketching fish and fish scales. They then used recycled fabrics to sew fish and create this beautifully textured fabric river.
