Today, Miss Oliver’s class have been working on Arctic landscapes in the style of Ted Harrison. Ted Harrison was a famous Canadian artist famed for his landscapes using line and colour.
The children have been working with different textures, including watercolour, clay and pencil.
Today one of Ted’s watercolours was shown on the whiteboard and children have been using this as a base to make their own line drawing which they will then fill with watercolour.
They have been developing various artistic skills and have been working with other children on their table to show that they can communicate ideas and collaborate with others.
Children have been using a sketch book to record observations and then using this to review and revisit ideas.
They hope to improve their mastery of art and design techniques including drawing, painting and sculpture with a range of materials for example, pencil, charcoal, paint and clay.
Once they have finished the artwork, children will be using different sources of information to learn about great artists in history.
All the year 3 and year 4 children are working on the same project in Art and are at different stages of it.
