This week has been Arts Week and Health and Well-being Week.   For Arts Week we looked at two artists who used circles in their work-Kandinsky and Hundertwasser.  We were then inspired to create our own art using different mediums. 

For Health and Well-being  Week the children have taken part in a range of activities including yoga, mindful colouring, meditation, dancing and learning about Our LIves.  We looked at the routines and patterns of a typical day, why hygiene is important and how all families are different.

 

Arts Week 2021 in Year 1

Date: 25th Jun 2021 @ 4:12pm

Year 1 have enjoyed a fun-filled week, learning a variety of different art skills and techniques. 

We used the work of Beatriz Milhazes as a stimulus, using circle shapes to create an abstract composition in pairs.

Then we explored different kinds of lines - wavy, vertical, horizontal and cross hatch. Using the work of Bridget Riley, we created our own line composition on black card using chalks - piecing them together as a class composition.

In our next lesson we used our line drawing skills to create a collaborative piece of art with an underwater theme, inspired by the work of David Hockney and Vija Celmins. We experimented with a variety of materials - chalks, oil pastel, cryaons, coloured pencils and felt tip pens.

At the end of the week, we did a colour mixing investigation - making primary and secondary colours using play dough and paint. Using our knowledge of colour, we then created some art work based on a study of the artist Jasper Johns. 

We have some very talented artists in our Year 1 class and have been impressed at how well they have all worked together to make their compositions!
