Aspire not to have more but to be more – St Oscar Romero


We looked at examples of the work by the British artist, Bridget Riley, and drew some of our own optical illusion art

We had a go at drawing in the style of Japanese Manga, which is often used in comics and turned into anime cartoons.

We used some resources from the website of wildlife artist 'Ben Rothery' to inspire our drawings of 'clouded leopards.

Sometimes we get inspired by our environment or interests and creativity bursts out of us.

We used resist techniques, with masking tape and salt, to create these birch tree watercolour paintings. Aren't they amazing!

For an additional quick-art activity, we had a go at sketching a bird in flight. It will help us when drawing in our nature diaries.

We had been doing some work on the propaganda art used during World War Two, so at home, we created out own propaganda posters. What do you think the messages are telling us to do?

We used what we had learned about colour mixing, Seurat’s colour techniques, Pointillism and France, to create Pointillist images of French landmarks. We were only allowed to use the primary colours of red, blue and yellow, so any other colours you see are either layered spots or your eyes playing tricks on you!

We have explored block-printing using our bird models as inspiration, layering and overlaying colours and designs.

In art we have been exploring how to fix modelled paper in place, to make sculptures with an accurate bird shape.
