Visual Arts

 

At Somerleyton Primary we encourage

children to explore and express ideas,

feelings and experiences through visual art.

 

Reception- The children studied Vicent Van Gogh's Starry Night

paintings and used this as inspiration for their own. 

They mixed black and white paint to blue to achieve the shades for the sky

and made yellow swirls and stars.

 Class 2 - Observational still-life drawings 

Using soft pencils, from 2b to 6b to create tones of grey,

the children described the shape ad form of the objects in still life.

They described the degree of lightness or darkness of an area

and used a rubber to show where the light was brightest. 

The tones varied from the bright white of a light source through

to shades of grey to the deepest black shadows. 

I am sure you will agree the results are excellent.

Vincent Van Gogh

Born 1853 Netherlands- died 1890 France

Year one have been inspired by the striking colour and

energetic brushwork shown in his sunflower paintings.

Using thick paints applied with spreaders they have successfully

painted the flowers then using collage and wax crayons added

background to create these wonderful still life images.

 Year 3 & 4 were inspired by the French artists Andre Derain and Matisse to create

their own portraits.  They were particularly looking at using hot and cold tones to show

light and dark.
