The Art of Landscape

Years 5 + 6 have been exploring different techniques used by different artists to create movement, fluidity and texture in the landscape taking inspiration from our local area, and particularly our recent visit to Ullswater.

We have taken a closer look at mark making by Vincent Van Gogh and watercolours by William Heaton Cooper.

Portraits using collage in Class 2


Class 2 have been learning about shape, line and proportion through portraiture.  They have explored facial details using a range of media taking inspiration from other artists.

After exploring the work of Guiseppe Arcimboldo who created portraits of people using images of fruits and vegetables, we have created our own fruity faces!
