Still Life

We have been learning how our perspective can change when viewing still life from various angles. We have been learning the process to create a still life artwork by exploring techniques including sketching and watercolour painting. We have combined these techniques to create effects including light, shade and form in our artworks.

Next, we will be learning about sustainable art to create a three-dimensional piece.

Emotional Portraits

We have been learning about emotion and how it can be portrayed within an Abstract Portrait. We have been learning the correct technique when sketching a portrait using the ‘face-grid technique’. We have also been learning the correct technique when using acrylic painting. We combined these skills to create an emotional self-portrait.

Next, we will be learning about Installation Art and how it can be created using the materials from our environment.

Texture Hunt!

We have been learning about textures within our internal and external environment. We have also been learning the correct technique when using watercolour paint within our art making. We combined these skills to create our final artwork, which was inspired by animals to create our own zoo.

Next, we will be learning about three-dimensional art through the use of papier-maché.

Getting mixed up with colour

This term in art we have been learning to apply the correct technique when using acrylic paint. We inquired into how colours change when they are mixed together. We explored the primary colours and how they can be used to create secondary colour whilst creating our own hot air balloon. Next we will be learning to utilise our knowledge of colour in artworks that represent seasons, times or places.

Shapes to make a face!

We have continued to develop our fine motor skills in cutting and gluing to create an abstract self-portrait. We inquired into a variety of shapes and how they can be sorted to create a face. Next we will be inquiring into how lines can be used in our art making.

In French we learnt how to introduce ourselves as well as the names of shapes. For example, we learnt that ‘circle’ is ‘cercle’ and ‘square’ is ‘carre.’ We will continue to practise to the PYP Attitude: Confidence (confiance en so) when speaking French.
