As part of our art lesson today the children used African animals and created silhouettes in the sun to trace round the shadow. Once they did this we went inside and filled in the animals showing how to use our pencil to create different tone and textures.
This week our topic has been art. We are currently looking at and appreciating the works of Vincent Wan Gogh. Whilst using different coloured pencils to get different tones we used Starry Night painting for our inspiration. Whilst colouring we listened to the soft voice of Don McClean singing Starry Starry Night about the life of Vincent Van Gogh.
Today in art the Puffins have been learning how to mix primary colours to make secondary colours. Once this was mastered and the correct colour palette was made we all had fun applying them to a copy of the artist Kandinsky painting Concentric Circles.
Continuing our fantastic Arts Week on Georgia O’Keeffe the Puffins have been working together on a mural piece using Georgia O’Keeffe lily paintings. They have also done some watercolour paintings of lilies and created their own flowers using pipe cleaners all ready to be part of the art exhibit tomorrow.
