Vincent Van Gogh

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.

Arts Week: Digital art effects

As part of Arts Week, Year 1 Puffins have today been using digital media to add affects on our focus artist Georgia O’Keeffe’s drawing.

The children used a website called Pop Art Studio to add various effects to a flower drawing by Georgia O’Keeffe.

The children learned quickly how easily and quickly effects can be applied to an image.

Here are some examples of children’s work.

Self-portraits

This week in Art, Puffins class have been focusing on self-portraits. We have finished off drawing one side of a photo using different coloured pencils to give different tones. Today we have used dot painting over a photo of themselves to show what different effects they can give to a plain image.
