Class 3 have been exploring cave paintings in their sketch books in our recent art lessons.
We have been re-visiting our prior learning by recapping on primary and secondary colours and we have been finding out exactly how to make brown! Did you know that there are three formulas to make it accurately: it is not a case of just mixing as many colours as possible together!
We have been looking at all the different ways to describe and make the endless shades of brown that can be created using acrylic paints, watercolours, oil pastels and watercolours. As well as looking closely at the earthy tones made by natural materials used in ancient cave paintings found in France, Spain and Argentina that date back thousands of years.
Here we are at work in our classroom this week….
