Landscapes using watercolour paint

We inquired into landscapes and the elements needed to create a landscape including a foreground, middle ground and background. We have been developing our drawing abilities through observation. We have been learning the correct process when using watercolour paints and how to use these within our artwork to create colour variations.


Next we will be learning about portraits.

The Rainbow Serpent!!

We created a collaborative piece that was inspired by the dreamtime story ‘The Rainbow Serpent’, which we read in French and in English. We inquired into colour by mixing paint to create new colour variations. We combined our knowledge of colour, shape and line to produce a jigsaw piece of the serpent.

Next we will be further exploring colour and how it can be used to express ourselves.


Holiday Homework

In your Visual Arts Diary, draw three experiences you had on the holidays. Use one page per experience.
You can use: Pencil, paint, crayon, or any other materials you have at home!

Bring your Visual Arts Diary to the first week back at school to share your experiences in art!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
Dianne and Jess 🙂

Landscapes and texture

We have been learning about texture through the technique of texture rubbing. We have explored mediums including crayons, pastels and watercolour paint and developed our ability to use these correctly. We have also been learning the correct technique to create a collage. We have combined these skills to create our final artwork of a texture themed landscape.

Next, we will be learning about three-dimensional artworks.
